- Sewing machine
- Ruffle foot
- 21″ x 45″ eyelet
- Pocket-curve template tool
- 2 1/2 yard of 2-inch grosgrain ribbon
- Sew 1/4 inch hems along the sides of the eyelet material. Also sew a 1 1/4 inch hem along the bottom of the material.
- Using your ruffle foot tool, make a ruffle along the top of the raw edge (top of fabric). Stitch along that edge to keep the ruffle in place.
- Fold the grosgrain ribbon in half and iron it in place. Align the center of the ribbon with the center of the ruffled edge of the fabric. Fold the ribbon over the ruffled edge and pin it in place. Attach the ribbon by top stitching around the bottom edge of the ribbon.
- Make a pocket using a remnant of a patterned material. Cut a 6″ by 6″ square of material out. Insert the fabric square into the pocket template tool and press with the iron to set. Create a 1/4″ hem along the top of the pocket and either adorn it with ribbon bows or embroider initials onto it.
- Pin the pocket in place on the apron, and then sew it in place with a top-stitch.
- Use a fishtail stitch on the ends of the apron ties to finish it.
