Follow these instructions for making your own binding tape. Let us now apply it to this apron. I attached a piece across the top using a zigzag stitch.
I stitched together 14” for one tie, encased one edge of the apron until I got to the neck piece. I measured out 21” of binding to go around the neck, left a small opening to thread elastic at each end, and continued sewing the other side of the apron and tie.
I used 10” of one eighth wide elastic to thread through the opening.
I sewed the hole closed; catching the elastic in the seam, then trimmed the elastic.
My 3 year old is ready to bake!
