The Bar-b-que king at your home will love this
reversible apron with two roomy pockets on each side!
For this holiday cook-out, use 1 1/2 yards of patriotic fabric covered in flags, fireworks and grilling tools.
On the flip side, to get much more use from his apron, choose a bright, coordinating fabric in either a print, plain or as I did here, tiny white dots on a red background.
My husband couldn’t wait to start using his new apron.
1 1/2 yards fabric for each side
(2) 1″ d-rings

Make a paper pattern for the apron body following the dimensions as shown in the video. Pattern for Apron top “Curve”: Apron pattern for “Curve”
Cut 2 ties, with the grain, 3″ x 42″
Cut 1 neck strap, with the grain, 3″ x 25″
Cut 1 pocket for each side (front and back) 10 1/2″ x 16″ wide
Fold each tie and the neck strap, in half lengthwise and sew 1/4″ from the edge leaving an opening about 5″ on the long edge of each piece.
After sewing each piece, turn right side out through the 5″ openings, press.
Top-stitch close to the edge, around all 4 sides of each strap/tie.
Pocket: Fold and press, 1/4″ along each edge; then, along the width on one edge, fold 1″ for top pocket hem.
Pin one narrow end of each tie to the upper, side corner of the apron body, match the edges and sew 2 or 3 times 1/4″ from the edge to secure.
At the top of the apron, pin one end of the neck strap, edges together and sew 2 or 3 time to secure.
From the opposite end of the neck strap cut off a 2″ piece.
Use this piece to hold the D-rings. Pass it through both rings, match the ends and
