Made on Mondays - Cat Apron

Awhile back I got on an apron kick and decided to research some easy apron patterns. I found a few that I liked and sent them to Mom so she could pick one she liked and make one for me! :) The one we used was how to make an apron in an hour. Well I can tell you, it took a little longer than an hour, and we changed some of the pattern but overall it turned out ADORABLE!

Mom started with this tutorial from Jona G. at Stop Staring and.... Start Sewing - Because it's fun! All it takes is a 1/2 yard of fabric and a fat quarter and that's all you need! :) One of the first adjustments we made was we did not rip the fabric. Mom tried it out and decided it just wasn't working for her, so we ended up using some of the ripped strips for our scarves. Mom ended up just using her rotary cutter to make the 3 strips for the apron.

A few other changes we plan to make when we add something like these aprons to our etsy shop is to make them shorter in length and also make the ties shorter so they don't wrap around to tie in the front.

As soon as we make another one, we'll do a tutorial with all the changes we've made to create our own apron! :) Happy Monday! Hope everyone has a great day!
