free sewing patterns from bonnie christine

i’m excited to share a free sewing pattern i made for you today! have you ever used mug rug? i use one every day! it’s one of those things that you don’t think you need until you finally have one and then you think, ‘how did i ever live without this?!’. i keep mine right next to my workspace and that’s where my coffee and tea lives every day. not only does it have it’s very own space on my desk, but it also gives my mug a silent landing spot. since bear is usually napping nearby, this is so helpful! i’ve too many times woke him by slamming my mug down on the table. not any more!

reversible apron pattern

October 9, 2013

reversible apron pattern by bonnie christine

hey friends! a few of you may know, i got my start selling aprons and tea towels on etsy about 6 years ago. though i don’t sell aprons any more, they are still one of my most favorite items to make! i just love wearing a pretty apron while i cook, don’t you?

to celebrate my latest fabric line, reminisce, i’m sharing with you the very apron pattern i made to get my start in the handmade industry all those years ago. it’s tried and true, fits beautifully and is easy to make. keep reading for the how-to and downloadable pdf pattern!

reversible apron pattern by bonnie christine (1)

supplies:

- pdf pattern (download here)
- 1 yard each of two coordinating  fabrics (we used timeless rosewood and sweet nostalgia antique)
- scissors
- rotary cutter and ruler (or just scissors if not available)
- sewing machine & thread

directions:

1. cut two apron panels, using the pattern supplied, one from each 1 yard piece of fabric. if your fabric is directional, be sure to cut out the apron with your pattern facing the correct direction.

2. cut four apron strings from the length of each 1 yard piece of fabric 1.5″ wide (8 total).

3. place two apron ties of contrasting colors right sides together and stitch around two long sides and one short end. (leave one end open for turning.) turn right sides out and press well. set aside.

4. place the apron pieces right sides together and pin together. tuck the apron ties inside the apron, with the open, unsewn ends extending in the seam allowance. placement is on both sides, ½” below the cut edge of the apron’s top edges and at the tops of the shoulders (see pattern for placement).

5. stitch around the entire apron, leaving a 4” opening for turning on one of the sides, below the tie. seam allowances are ¼”. turn the apron right side out and press well. tip: using a  point turner in the corners will ensure sharp points.

6. machine or hand stitch the opening on the side closed.

7. cook up a storm and enjoy!

diagonal clutch - a free pattern

art gallery fabrics just recently published a free pattern for this diagonal fold over clutch over on the creative blog. isn’t it darling? they used a few peachy, pastely, vintage-inspired prints from my fabric line with them called reminisce (available here and here), and i just love the result! i agree with agf, a women can never have enough handbags (or enough fabric to make them with)!

head on over to art gallery fabrics to get the free pattern!

October 16, 2012

hello lovelies! a few weeks ago i asked for your opinion over on facebook and instagram on which of my patterns i should use on a new iphone case. well the votes came in and so did my new iphone case! i ordered it using casemate’s custom option and couldn’t be happier with the quality and fit for my new phone.
