Now we are ready to start putting it all together.Fuse the interfacing to each pocket.
Fold the crayon pocket, wrong sides together and press. Pin to the bottom of the front side of your apron. I used ribbon for ties on this apron, so you can pin them to sides of the apron.
Now we are going to make the small pocket for the top. Fold it in half with the right sides together. Stitch around the pocket leaving an opening on the side for turning. Clip the corners and turn right side out. Press.
Pin the pocket 2.5" down from the top of the apron and center it from side to side. Stitch around the pocket to attach it to the apron front.
Now, you can sew around the crayon pocket and ties to attach them to the apron front.
The neck strap is next. Fold it in half, right sides together and sew a scant 1/4" from the edge. Turn it right side out and thread the elastic piece through. I like to use a safety pin to help turn the strap right side out and to insert the elastic through the casing.
Pin the neck strap in place and sew across the edges to hold it in place.
I like to pin the ties and across the crayon pocket to held everything in place while adding the back.
Pin on the back, right sides together.
Stitch around the apron, leaving an opening on the side for turning. Clip the corners and curves. Turn right side out and press.
Now, stitch around the outside of the apron.
All that's left to do is to create the pockets for the individual crayons. Use the pattern as a reference and mark with pins where each pocket division should be. You may have to change the divisions a little to fit the apron you have made. Just make sure you have 12 spaces for the crayons.
Stitch each pocket division, back stitching at each end. Clip your threads, press, and you're done!
Remember, this pattern is for home use only. Please do not sell aprons made with this pattern or distribute the pattern without my permission. Thanks!
So, if you have actually read this far, congratulations! I hope you have fun making your own crayon apron. Leave a comment on this post and I will use the random number generator and one person will recieve the apron made in this project. I'll pick a number on Monday, Feb.2! Good Luck!
