  • For the apron with the bottom ruffle option, you will need 3/4 yard (67 cm) of main fabric for the bib and skirt and 5/6 yard (76 cm) for your ties and ruffle.

You Will Also Need:

  • A good pair of scissors
  • Sewing pins
  • A ruler
  • A marking pen or pencil
  • A "dull-pointed" object (anything like a crochet hook, a chopstick, a very dull pencil, etc. - This will be used to make nice points at the ends of your neck ties and waist ties).
  • A straight long skinny object - a 1/2" to 3/4" dowel works best, but if you don't have a dowel you can use a thick crochet hook or even a long handled spoon for turning your ties.
