1  Fold the apron body in half and put a pin at the central point. Measure 12cm from centre on each side and mark with pins. This is where your front straps will go. 

2. Fold the first strap in half along the long edge. Stitch, then turn inside out and press. 

3. Repeat with the second strap.

4. With right sides together, pin the straps into place upside down along the top edge of the apron so the raw edges are lined up.Try the apron on at this point to check you have them in the right place.

5.  With right sides still together, lay the facing strip on top of the straps along the entire top edge of the apron and stitch.

6. Turn in the right way and press.

7. Turn the raw edge of the facing under, press, then stitch to the body of the apron. 

8. Hem the sides and then the bottom of the apron
