Summer is here and just thought of turning on the oven in the summer makes me hot. So most of our cooking is done on the grill. We're big fans of grilled pizza at our house! Anyone else anti cooking during the summer? I have ruffley aprons, but they look a little out of place with the grill. Riley Blake's cotton duck home decor fabric is a little heavier and tougher so I knew it would work great for a grilling apron.

I chose Aqua Found Label and Gray Found Damask from the Lost and Found line by My Mind's Eye. You'll need 1 yd of the main fabric and .5 yd for the pocket, as well has 3 yds cotton webbing for the ties.   grilling_apron_pattern Fold the fabric in half (we'll get a front and a back to the apron) and measure out 13". Using a pencil or chalk, make a line at 13" and up 20" From the bottom measure up 24" and make a line that is 6.5" long. Connect the edge of this line to the top of the line that is 20" tall, making an angle.

Using a rotary cutter and ruler, cut along the lines.

Place the 2 pieces together, right sides out. Pin together and zig zag or serge the edge together. Then hem the top, bottom and straight sides. Save the angled sides for last as that will be where we send the ties through. I used a larger hem for the top and bottom. Alternative: place apron pieces right sides together, sew around the edges leaving an opening, and turn. Then top stitch around the edges.

Make the hems on the angled sides wide enough for your webbing. There's about an inch opening here. For the pocket, zig zag or serge the edges. Then hem the top as you did the apron. Fold the edges in .5" and press. Pin to apron and sew the sides and bottom. To make smaller pockets inside the larger pocket, mark over 3.5" and sew and then go over another 3.5" from that seam and sew another line down.

Thread the webbing through the sides, leaving a loop at the top to go around the neck. These aprons are great because they are adjustable, meaning it will fit my husband and myself.
