Free Pattern - Duck Dynasty Apron - From Fat Quarter Shop

SewCalGal is just giddy about being able to share insights with my followers about a new pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop.  I've promised to not divulge this new pattern till today.  This is a super fun and fast pattern that will make for great gifts, throughout the year, but you'll also want to make it for use in your home!  It is an apron design that is super fun.  Even my hubby loves this design and wants me to make more!

And Fat Quarter Shop Design Team is celebrating the release of this new design with a blog hop today!

The Fat Quarter Shop team has written an easy  to follow pattern that you can download in PDF format.  And they have also created an excellent youtube video tutorial:

This cute apron is a super easy design that can be made quite quickly using a dish towel that you can find at Target, WalMart, or just about any store that carries kitchen items.  Plus one yard of fabric.  You may want to use a seasonal motif fabric, but really any complimentary fabric to your kitchen towel will work.

I enjoyed making an apron using nautical fabric.

Of course, I quickly realized the fun of creating aprons to celebrate Spring.  And I thought this Hoffman batik made for a fun combination for the season (although my photo doesn't capture the colors).  

As I have a friend that loves purple, I  also enjoyed using some purple Hoffman batiks to her an apron!  

Thank you to my hubby who endured being a last minute photo model. But as he was about to BBQ, it seemed like a perfect opportunity.  Plus, I do think if is an apron-aholic.  If he likes an apron I know the design is a good one. And he LOVES this design!

SewCalGal believes the possibilities are endless with this fun and fast apron design from the Fat Quarter Shop.  You could use it to make hostess gifts for when you are invited to dinner at a friend, add to a gift basket, decorate for an upcoming Easter Brunch (or any holiday).  Of course, SewCalGal is hoping to see some entries using this fun and fast design for entering one of the monthly challenges in the  Handmade Christmas Challenge (these aprons would certainly make for great gifts or use in your home for the holidays).

Great apron idea. I wear a pocket apron when sewing. This is so cute, can't wait to make a couple of them. And I may have to buy some duck dynasty fabric for my brother-in-law who is a hunter and loves to cook.

That would be a good idea for a gift!

These are cute and what a good idea to use a towel on the front to absorb moisture! Thanks for sharing.

Very cute! I plan to check out the pattern, but i prefer an apron with a top, too. I splash higher than my waist, lol. Messy cook (but love doing it and often use an apron). Nice model! lol
