Cobbler Apron with Pockets
Free Sewing Pattern
by KarensVariety.com

terry bath towel
20 1/2 inches of bias tape
2 buttons
tape measure

A cobbler's apron slips over the head and has a front and back section. It typically has large pockets in front and has many uses. Children can wear one to protect their clothing and carry craft items or small toys. Adults like them for carrying cleaning items or when they tidy up to carry items as they put things away. They are useful for repair chores to carry nails or small tools. Carry spices and brushes when barbecuing. Made from terry cloth, this apron is easy to make and to wash, but the apron can be made from any sturdy fabric and can have two or more pockets.

Fold the towel across the width, 16 inches from one end.

Cut a 10-inch slit along the folded line of the towel.

Bind it with bias tape, using an overcasting stitch.

Sew the two buttons at A and B and make loops for the buttons at C and D.

Make a pocket by folding over a 4-inch piece of towel at the bottom and sewing it with a running stitch at the sides of the towel and in the middle.
