How-To Baker's Apron Email Print Martha Stewart Living, December 2006 Reviews (22) Add a Review Creatrlvr69 30 Jul, 2011 I'm having a difficult time printing the template. It only wants to print B7 &6. Anyone else having this issue? caseyvg 6 Apr, 2011 I thought this pattern was very easy to make. Having to tape the template together was a pain, but not rocket science. I added some decorative stripes too. You can see my finished apron at www.simplejoycrafting.blogspot.com. PJRhonda 4 Apr, 2011 Very nice apron. I made it for my dd's birthday and give it to her with a large fluted pie plat and a 'pie bird'. I only wish that a link to the gardener's apron would have been included. The search for how to make the straps took FOREVER.... but I love the pattern. Went together easy-peasy. Thanks!

Malia81 4 Jan, 2011 I'm posting a few pointers, but it's longer than 500 characters... so please forgive my multiple posts! I hope they're helpful :) justjenn86 2 Nov, 2010 Does this same pattern work for a plus sized person? coltrane 8 Jul, 2010 How many yards of material does this apron require? k_giannotti 12 Jun, 2010 Wish I had the faintest idea how the pieces of the template went together. The pattern is confusing; obvious that A's go with A's snowfire555 3 Jun, 2010 The pattern is confusing but simple once you get it put together. Each part prints SIDEWAYS and there are 2 "columns' (A Dee_10933573_298 5 Nov, 2008 I agree with SarahAnnSmith, it would be extremely helpful with dimensions.. I'm still taping mine together, but I'm confident that I'll get it. That or I'll just buy a template for an apron... Wish me luck!! Margecam52 7 Mar, 2008 The template works fine...it's in sections Beeaditude 22 Feb, 2008 This pattern is ludicrous. There is not a single measurement, instruction and the pieces are not labeled. I am very surprised to find this on Martha's site. I DO NOT recommend trying to even view this pattern. EricaKolb 7 Jan, 2008 loved the picture, Then I printed of the template, so sad. Very hard to read and understand. I threw it away. If there were better directions maybe someday I could wear it! SarahAnnSmith 30 Dec, 2007 Love the apron, but not the PDF (which wasn't available when I tried to make this when it came out in the magazine a year ago). PDF is sixteen pages, which will be hard to store once taped together. Could the editors do a diagram showing measurements: Width, length in center, length on side, length of diagonal cut... much easier than printing (and then wastefully tossing) all that paper! Thanks! SarahAnnSmith 30 Dec, 2007 The template for this apron wasn't available when I tried to make it in Dec. 2006. Now it is, and prints out on 16 (yep SIXTEEN) sheets of paper... just simple lines, but still. I am wondering if it would be possible for the editors just to do a single-page diagram of measurements... how wide, how long in the center, how wide across the center top, how long from hem to base of diagonal cut-away for arms, etc. That would be a whole lot simpler Thanks. eagercrafter59 25 Dec, 2007 Hi my name is eagercrafter59 I just made this fun apron. I added some cross stitch baking motifs I have collected over the years. I used material with a garden theme. I just love this apron! I have leftover material from some quilt projects so I decided to make a apron for several ladies in my family and friends. Now I want to find some stamps to match their personalities. My mind is on overdrive with ideas!
