Ruffled Apron

My sweet princess asked for an apron that went down to her feet, so that's what she got. It was very easy to make and didn't cost a thing since I was able to use some left over fabric that I had laying around.

I first took a piece of white fabric and cut it into a rectangle. I sewed the edges and than layed out the strips of fabric. I placed each one about 3/4" underneath the strip of fabric that was above it.

I hemmed each strip and then sewed the top of each strip with my sewing machine, but did not create a knot, so that I could pull the thread and create a ruffled look. I sewed each strip onto the white fabric and than sewed a piece of ribbon at the top.

Wah-Lah! A floor length apron fit for a princess.
