Reversible Aprons - Child and Adult - Beginner Sewing Pattern & Video Tutorial


These aprons are great quick or beginner sewing projects.  They are perfect to sew up with the young makers in your life.  The finished apron is reversible, so the cook will always stay clean and stylish in the kitchen.  They make a lovely holiday, teacher, hostess or housewarming gift and they sew up in no time!

This pattern has been simplified to be easy to sew. It is a great way to show off a favorite fabric.  Through making countless aprons and teaching how to make these aprons in person over the last few years, I have learned the most common questions and challenges and tried to answer them in the instructions and video. 

In addition to the step by step instructions, you will also have access to a full video tutorial which will walk you through each step of the project in detail.

These aprons are a blank canvas.  Grab some fabric from your stash and get sewing!  Of course, if you need a reason to buy some new fabric, check out the great options our shop. I hope you love them as much as I do.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

The size can be easily adjusted.  The the directions and pattern pieces will still apply.

Students are also encouraged to join the Crosscut Sewing Community Facebook Group to share their project or ask questions.

Crosscut Sewing Apron Kit

This sewing pattern is designed to teach new or young sewers how to follow sewing instructions.  Students with a little experience may be able to follow by themselves.  Younger students may need help, but read the directions carefully together and encourage them to figure out each step.  This is a simple project, so the focus can really be on reading and following each step.
