Aprons for Zebras

DSC_0227My son’s preschool class does a lot of baking. At least once a week he comes home with fresh baked goods (more if it’s raining). As a thank you to the school I made his teacher and all his classmates some zebra print aprons. Every class is named after an animal, Asher is in the zebra class, hence the print.

After cutting the apron shape I did a half inch bias tape trim on the sides and bottom and a 3/4 inch bias trim across the top and around the next. The neck strap attaches to the apron with velcro on one side.
I did three different trims and rolled them up and put them in a little basket to take to school.

I used this tutorial from Stop Staring and Start Sewing to make the teacher’s apron.
I am thrilled that the class decided to keep the aprons at school and will now use them when ever they do their baking. Now I just need to make one for myself.


  1. The aprons are adorable. I love the fabric.

  2. I was noticing from many days that your blog is helping too many readers as your articles are easy to understand and helpful to us.
