FREE Pattern: Christmas Ruffle Apron & Fabric Giveaway!

Make a fun and frilly apron to wear throughout the holiday season with my 
FREE Christmas Ruffle Apron Pattern & Tutorial 
enter for a chance to win all these fabrics in my latest 

It has a nice full front to keep clothes clean while cooking & baking:

Full of fluffy, pretty ruffles in cheery holiday colors & prints like buffalo check, chalkboard snowflakes and vintage red trucks with a festive and flattering fit!

 The apron also features an adjustable single tie to get just the right fit around the neck and waist:

It's fully finished on the back too, so it's technically reversible and a great way to use even more festive prints!  It's perfect Christmas wear for a hostess or to make as a gift.

I created this project for Team Timeless using their lovely Home for the Holidays fabric collection.

I'm also giving away an assorted bundle of 1/4 & 1/2 yard cuts of these fabrics + coordinating Mix Basics solids to one lucky winner, courtesy of Timeless Treasures.  There will be enough fabric included to make a Ruffle Apron!

Now onto the apron making!!

Cutting Instructions

Fold fabrics, selvages together before cutting

- Along fold cut top apron front from and top apron back from Gail-C6887 and Holiday-C5790 Red.
- Cut 22"w x 17"h lower apron front from and lower apron back from C7200-Black, Holiday-C5790 Green
- Cut single WOF x 4 1/2"h strip from each of C7200-Pine, C7200-Cherry, Holiday-C5784 Red, Gail-C6887, Gail-C6886

Double fold all sides of ruffle strips under by 1/4 in (except the top ruffle, which needs the horizontal top edge unfolded).  Press, then topstitch short sides and bottom sides for all.  Baste along top for each piece.  Pull up on bobbin threads and cinch fabric to ruffle the strips.  Spread evenly.

Mark the front piece with horizontal lines for the ruffle placement as shown:
Starting at bottom marking line, pin basted top edges of ruffles into place, leaving a 3/8in space on either side for the seam allowance:

Fabric order shown for ruffles is:

Holiday-C5784 Red

Stitch ruffles into place along top edge:

With right sides facing, pin lower edge of front apron top piece to the top edge of the ruffled lower piece and stitch together.  Do the same for the back apron pieces.

With right sides facing, pin together front & back pieces of apron, being careful to tuck the ruffle layers inward. Stitch together all the way around leaving 1 1/4 in wide gaps at the corners of the top edge and side edges (for the tie casing) and leaving a 3 inch gap at the bottom for turning.  Trim seam allowances and turn right side out.  

Press all edges flat.  Slip stitch by hand or machine stitch bottom gap opening.

Mark, then top stitch 1 1/4 in inward from curved sides to create the casing.  

Starting at one lower end, insert ribbon/twill tape through one side casing (attached to a bodkin or safety pin) and down through the other to create the adjustable apron tie.  Heat seal or stitch ends of ties to prevent fraying.

Time to put it on and enjoy the merry-making season!

  6. Cute apron. I REALLY HATE when I have to search and search for a Pin link!! And there isn't one.. So I'll skip it!

    1. I don't agree with Pinterest's unfair censorship and blocking of pins, so I don't support or use them any longer, which is why there are no Pin It buttons on my site.

  7. Even though I love the ruffled apron, I would use the fabric to make a set of holiday place mats! They are the perfect assortment of fabrics to make festive, colorful places to set our plates on the dining table. Happy Holidays!
