Aprons bring up thoughts of grandmothers, home economists, and Thanksgiving for me. My friends know that I am not a great cook though I am a home economist. I “assemble” ok though. The Captain is probably the better cook on board. He does great grill and grill bread. So when I made a simple apron out of recycled sail cloth not too long ago, I got a funny look. “When was the last time you wore an apron?” Well, it was probably back on land when I made chocolate truffles for a Chocolate Valentines Day Party. I didn’t have one on board anyway. Maybe now that I have one, I’ll wear one.
Sail Cloth Apron
This is a very easy project taking about 1-2 hours.
–Sail cloth or other fabric with some weight
—Binding – 5-8 yards of binding
–Cut an apron shape out of the material. It can be square or longish.
–Add a pocket or decorative detail if you want.
–Using a binder attachment, add the binding across the top. Then add binding starting at one side leaving a yard or so off each end for ties around the neck.
–Make binding ties for the sides and stitch those on.
