Weeks ago I made this little apron tutorial for a friend’s virtual baby shower.  She’s due real soon, so my tutorial is posting today at Progressive Pioneer to give Amy some time to nest.  Woohoo!  I am so glad to get to share it with you at last!

Do you like it?  I had sooooo much fun with this!  It was not long after I completed the square in square charity block for Rainbow Around the Block.  I just adore the multiple square in square style.  The way the squares form diamonds when set on point made them ideal for…. apron pockets.  Yes, of course!  This apron is designed with one large front pocket.  If you line dry your laundry, you’ll LOVE this for clothespins.  So much nicer to have them on the body than anywhere else.  Bending, moving, everything – it’s way more convenient!  And, hey, you’ll look good too ;).

You can find the tutorial at Progressive Pioneer, or download a pdf version from my Tutorials page.  This project is simple enough for a beginner, though things will go a lot quicker with a rotary cutter and mat.
