I tried to make this pattern easy enough for beginners but it is still pretty intense, and whether experienced or otherwise, you are going to need some stamina and patience to get it all done, along with a healthy understanding of your sewing machine, of course. A serger is optional but included in instructions for those who have one.
If this project scares the crap out of you, do not fear! 125 pictures, 43 pages of simple instruction with almost 4000 words and you will be baby-stepped all the way to your very own owl apron! A bit of humor thrown in for good measure. If you aren’t having fun, you are doing it WRONG! ;D
YES, it is a long project, but I promise you I worked hard to make it as easy as possible for ANYONE to try. If you are confused or need clarification on anything feel free to contact me, I am more than willing to help you out further!
My very first apron ever (when I was creating the pattern) took me a MONTH to get finished. If you follow my pattern and stay strong, I am pretty optimistic it will NOT take you as long- first apron or not. ;D
