I made this apron for my sewing time. Because I always hurry picking off threads all over my clothes when my girl’s school pickup time.

Do you wear an apron when you cook? I think I wear most all the time unless I can’t find where I left it. 😉


I was lucky enough to receive the Simply Stitched with Applique by Yumiko Higuchi from Zakka Workshop.

This book is filled with variety hand embroidery motifs that you can combine with felt and plain cotton fabric. I would like to use felt on my sewing illustration next time.

Before I start stitching, I decided to make an apron because I knew I won’t be able to use it if I make a placemat like in the book.

So I picked my favortie design and started hand stitching on a 12” x 10” yarn dyed fabric. Then I turn it into a  big pocket.


It’s very easy and quick project that you can make many aprons in one day.

My Charming Pocket Apron tutorial is on WeAllSew, Bernina blog today.

Don’t forget to download the pattern and a chance to win a copy of Simply Stitched wih Applique from Zakka Workshop.


Happy sewing!
