Today's project - Aprons for your dish soap bottles! I am not sure why a dish soap bottle needs an apron, but they are cute! My sister did point out that it keeps the bottle from slipping out of wet hands. I also tried to make it more functional by adding a pocket to the apron. You could either put a little plastic scraper, which I am forever misplacing, or use it to hold your jewelry while you wash dishes.
Scraps of fabric (not more then 1/8 yd)
Scraps of coordinating 1/4" bias tape (not more then 1yd)
Cut 2 apron pieces and one pocket piece.
(To make pocket piece measure 2 1/4" from bottom of apron, draw a straight line across. Either fold or cut on line.)
|Sew bias tape along top of pocket edge.|
|Pin pocket in place.|
|Sew bias tape along top edge of apron, cutting off access.|
|Measure 2 1/2" from end of bias tape, mark with pin.|
|Sew bias tape from end to marking pin.|
|Insert top corner of apron into bias tape and sew.|
|Continue sewing bias tape around apron to opposite top corner.|
|Cut bias tape 2 1/2" from edge of apron.|
|Fold bias tape around first end of neck strap and continue sewing.|
|Measure a 12" piece of bias tape for tie. Pin in place matching centers.|
|Sew tie on, starting at end of bias tape.|
