Honeymoon Apron

This was a fun one to make. My sister is getting married and I decided to mix the bedroom and kitchen into one gift. I'd been thinking of this idea for a while. It turned out well. The material takes some getting used to, but worth it.

I cut one large bottom piece to the size I wanted. (It would be cute to have a wavy bottom). I then cut 2 triangles of the same material. I folded the outside edges of the large body piece and triangles over twice and hemmed to prevent fraying. Using pins is a must with the slippery fabric. I used black velvet in one long strip for the ties and to attach the bottom piece (with ruffle edge attached and lace at the top) and triangles onto. For the triangle tops, I gathered the middle of the bottom into several small pleats before adding to the middle velvet ties. Pin in place. I attached velvet ties to the top of the triangles for neck ties and then embellished it all with some simple hand-sew black flowers on the top of the triangles and right in the middle. When making the triangles, measure half the length of the top of the large bottom piece and make the bottom of the triangle 1 1/2 that length to leave room for gathering. Or just keep in mind the bust size of the person you're making the apron for. It's one of those aprons that it doesn't really matter what size you are.

I think it would be fun to make another Honeymoon Apron that is a 2-piece: a cafe apron bottom and triangle top. Have fun!


  1. Oh, my! The hilarity! You have such a terrific sense of humor, Bonnie!

  2. This is so funny! Mostly because I used to think that would be the most romantic/feminine little number. :) Very creative!


I love to hear your feedback.
