Tuesday's Tutorial: Curly's Bandanna Apron
During a play date a few weeks ago, Curly and a friend were playing restaurant in her kitchen. She could only find one apron and "needed" two. With the sewing machine and a few supplies nearby, she solved her problem. I heard the sewing machine going in the next room and got a bit nervous. She was making an apron..."real quick". And, quick it was. Within 5 minutes she had a second apron and the restaurant play continued. She's been asking me to allow her to prepare a tutorial for you all.
The Bandanna Apron project is perfect for a first sewing experience.
Ribbon (length of waist plus tie)
Sew with your presser foot along the hemmed edge. Knot (or backtack) at the start and finish of this seam. Backtack is the term for going forward and back a couple of times to "knot" your seam. Casing: is the term used for a folded space to thread something through.
Curly has made a few of these and is now adding pockets, "towels", and trims....have fun!
