A Work Apron

I recently made a cute work apron from Kathleen McMusing’s pattern featured in the Partners in Design’s Holiday Gifts to You Hop. You can get the pattern here.

A Work Apron pattern by Kathleen McCormick

Kathleen says her pattern was “born out of necessity” to keep her phone on hand in her sewing studio. I too made it primarily to carry my phone on me because these days I am frequently wearing my Covid uniform that incudes pocketless casual pants.

I have been using my phone pedometer to help keep me active on “inside days.” It helps motivate me to reach my current daily step goal of 3,000 and I will go up and down stairs just to reach it.

My step counting companion is our cat Ruthie who expects a mouse to be launched down every time I go up. So, the multiple apron pockets makes it perfect for me to have plenty on person!

I used a sale remnant I bought from the 2017 fabric collection “City Gals” by QY Fabrics. It’s so fun and colorful!

The apron is easily adjustable to customize the length and/or width. I made my tie using ribbon, measuring it long enough to tie in the front.

Thanks for visiting. Hoping all is well with you. Texans, you are in my thoughts.

  1. What a great idea, using the apron so you can keep the pedometer going. I listen to music on my phone, so it sits on my sewing table connected to my stereo system, so I can’t keep it with me while I walk around. I might change my mind though, after seeing this! And Wilbs loves those mice, too!

  2. I love this! I used to wear pocketed aprons when I taught. The kids loved to see what I would bring out of the pockets. I have the same Covid uniform as you, so this apron is a great idea. Thanks for sharing. And thanks for thinking of the people in Texas at this time.
