- Cut two pieces of oilcloth. Main piece should be 23 inches long (11 1/2 inches at top and 22 inches across).
- Fold larger piece vertically, wrong side out. About 1 foot from bottom, draw curve; cut.
- Make 1-inch hem at top of pocket panel; sew to apron, leaving 1/4-inch seam allowance.
- To create pockets, machine-stitch down front of pocket panel, about 1/3 of the way in from sides.
- Sew 1 1/2-inch hem at top of apron. Trim curved edges of apron with bias tape, leaving enough extra at each end for ties; zigzag-stitch over tape to attach.
