This project will teach you how to decorate an apron using lace, fabric, your machine decorative stitches and applique techniques.
To create this project you can use any style sewing machine. I have used a Brother NV110 sewing machine.
What you will need
You can sew your own basic apron using the pattern from our May Charity Sewalong. I have purchased this apron from a Daiso Japanese store for only $2.80. You may also be able to find aprons like this from $2 stores across Australia.

How to create your apron
First you need to get together all of your fabric, lace and applique pieces. Start cutting out your applique shapes from the fat quarters. You can choose any colours for these applique shapes but I would suggest you choose a white fabric for the circle and then style your cupcake shapes differently.
