Pockets and Pies Apron – New Tutorial

We have updated a favorite tutorial for you all! We really enjoyed our old Pockets and Pies Apron, but this time around we have refreshed the fabric and have improved the tutorial. This apron takes less than half an hour to sew, and you can use items from home to construct it. Read more below for fabric inspiration and to see the new video tutorial!


To see aprons made by some of our favorite peeps around the web, and even some Fat Quarter Shop-ers, hop over to the bottom of this post!

Before you begin, you will need 1 yard of fabric (we chose GRL PWR fabric by Damask Love for Riley Blake, but the options are pretty much endless!), one standard dish towel (16″ x 26″) and matching thread. We used a 3.0 stitch length throughout the project, and backstitched at the beginning and end of each seam, unless otherwise noted. We filmed a tutorial video that walks you through the entire assembly process for this easy apron, if you want to see it made in action!

This apron looks adorable in a wide variety of fabrics. Two Fat Quarter Shop-ers made their own versions of the Pockets and Pies Apron. This photo is a real blast from the past from the first time we made the Pockets and Pies Apron a couple of years ago. It brings back sweet memories from the projects that we have created together at Fat Quarter Shop! This nautical apron is made from Michael Miller Fabrics and the retro apron features vintage fabric.

The fabric that we used for our apron is  GRL PWR fabric by Damask Love for Riley Blake! This fabric is full of florals, lightning bolts, stars, and dots. This collection also includes grids that add texture to pair with the diverse female forms and hands.

  1. I have made aprons using your tutorial many times and love them all. They make great gifts, and are fun to use seasonal fabrics too! I honestly think this is the most comfortable and practical apron I’ve ever used. Love it.

  2. I love this. I will make a few! I have silly grand girls that love to help, and they are proficient in the kitchen even the three and two year old.
    I like aprons with a bib. I adore your idea of the terry towel portion of this apron. I might just make a few, and add on some bibs for lots of hand wiping fun
