The design of this reversible butcher-style apron is boutique-worthy and fits like a charm. It's simple enough for a beginning sewer. The pattern has a single pocket on each side (I changed mine to two) and a wrap-around tie (I changed mined to just tie in the back). It's recommended that you come with the ties already completed as they are the most time consuming part. Also bring a large sheet of butcher paper or freezer paper if you want to trace your own copy of the pattern.
Cost: your own materials

7/8 yard of fabric 1
7/8 yard of fabric 2
1/3 yard of fabric for ties
1 1/2 yards of large ric-rac
sewing machine, matching thread, scissors

  1. I envy the fact that your ward has a super Saturday! I love all your projects, adorable and affordable! Thanks for sharing fun ideas!

  2. I love all your projects. They are way cute!

    Jessica is begging for a Farkle kit. (The Reeds and my parents have the game, but no cute bag.) So...if you want a cheap baptism gift for her later that day... (I am totally serious.)

  3. I'm not sure how appropriate a gift it would be for a baptism, but if that's what will make her happy, I'm all for it. I was trying to figure out what to get her. Check that off my list. I had planned to make one for your family, but I'm sure Jessica will share, especially as much as she enjoys games. Actually, I need her to show me how to play!

  4. I want to come to your super Saturday! What awesome projects you are offering! Love the banners.

  5. I love the different projects that your ward did for Super Saturday! I was wanting to make my own fall blocks with my Mom and some friends...we were wondering where were you able to find the blocks for fall blocks project? Thanks!

  6. Betherd:
    We had a husband cut 4x4 pieces of redwood 1" thick. You could easily use pine too, but my friend who designed the blocks thought the redwood sanded nicer, etc. It is more expensive. She said they got it at Home Depot. Hope that helps. Let me see your finished projects when they're done!

  7. I had this pinned on pinterest and decided to check out the link tonight. Any chance you would share instructions on how to make the farkle bag?

  8. I found this post via pinterest as well- we are trying to figure out a simple apron for our super saturday and I LOVE this reversible one. Is there any way I could get more details on the pattern?

    1. ^^ That is me and for some reason even after I log in it still shows me as unknown. (?) Anyway- my email is pmqtphotography@gmail.com if you could help me with any info. Thanks!

  9. Is there any way to get the apron pattern?..absolutely adorable!
