Here is the first one (error, that is). Be sure and print your image in reverse (mirror image)!!!! I didn't figure out what I had done wrong until I went to iron it on!!! It took about 10 minutes to reprint on a new iron-on transfer sheet.
I used linen for the apron. I cut one panel 25x21 on the fold ( becomes 25x42) and 2 strips 25x3 1/4. The fold will become the apron's bottom hem. Fold strips in half lengthwise and press.
Stitch along the long edge and one short edge.
Turn inside out. I used these cool tubes that really make it easy!
With the apron main piece folded in half, (the fold is the bottom hem) stitch along the waist. This will leave you with a tube.
Now tuck apron ties right up along the top seam on each side and pin.
Stitch both sides closed leaving a small 3 inch opening on one side unstitched. Turn apron right side out and close the opening with a whip stitch or iron in tape. Press well.
Now cut 4 strips of black linen 4x48 inches.
Mark two lines at both 2 and 5 inches from the bottom hem on apron.
Fold black strips in half length wise and stitch along long edge and one short edge. Turn right side out, press and turn in and close remaining short edge with slip stitch or iron in tape. Then attach each long finished strip along marked lines to bottom of the apron. I pinned and casually bunched it along so it looked totally imperfect.
Now you are ready to apply your image. Follow manufacturer's instruction. It took about 3 minutes of ironing to get it on well. This is when you will understand why your image must be "mirror"!!! Don't overdue the heat or your image will yellow. Allow to cool completely before removing backing. To camouflage the edge of the iron on, I sewed on black rick rack!
