Kitchen Apron Bulletin Board
Skill Level: Beginner
- foam Brand Foam:
- Three - Sheets: 18”x12”x1”
- Fabric Apron Kit
- ½” Ribbon (to coordinate)
- ¾” Pearl Head Pins
- Design It:® Foam Cutter or Serrated Knife
- Low-Temp Glue Gun
- Black Marker
- Glue the three sheets of foam together side by side. You should have a panel 36” tall and 18” wide.
- Cut out all fabric pieces from the kit, leaving about a ½” gluing allowance.
- Lay the apron pattern on the foam panel face side down and use a dull pencil to press an outline through the fabric into the foam. Press the outline all the way around the apron pattern about 1” in from the apron edge, creating a torso silhouette. Remove the fabric from the foam, if the outline is hard to see draw over it with the black marker. Cut out the torso silhouette using the serrated knife. Use pieces of foam scraps to “sand” the edges of the foam torso smooth. Save the remaining foam scraps for a future project.
- Center the fabric apron face up onto the foam torso. Wrap the fabric edges around and attach to the back of the foam using low-temp glue. Glue one side and then the opposite side, pulling snug as you go to keep the apron centered. Attach the neck tie with glue and use for the hanger. Attach the pockets and ruffle trim if included in your kit. The waist ties do not need to be attached.
- Crisscross four pieces of ribbon across the front of the apron, as shown, gluing at the back. Push in pearl head pins where the ribbons cross.
