To protect our awesome outfits we collaborated with fabric.com to make this apron. Here is a free pattern and instructions to make your own!

1. Cut out pattern pieces, trace onto your fabric and then cut your fabric.
2. We are going to start the apron by sewing on the pocket! Press 1/4 inch around the edges of your pocket piece. On all four sides. Fold over the top of your pocket piece 1 inch and press. Now sew as close to the bottom folded edge as possible.
3. Pin your pocket fabric to your self fabric. Sew around the 2 side edges and the bottom edge as close to the outside of the pocket as you can.
4. Hem the top of your apron, the sides and bottom.
5. Fold over the ends of your curved facings 1/2 inch and press. Then fold over the outside edge of the curved facing 1/4 inch.
6. Pin these pieces to the arm curves of the self fabric. Make sure the raw edges of the self fabric and the facings are the edges that are being pinned together. Now sew them!
7. Press the seam open. And turn the whole facing piece to the back of your apron and press.
8. Sew along each edge of your curved facing. Making a channel.
9. Now for your strap! Sew the three pieces together and press your seams to one side. Fold over the end pieces and all along the side edges of the strap 1/2 inch and press. Now fold the strap in half and press + pin as you go. Sew the strap closed as close to the edge as possible.
10. Thread each end of your strap through the arm channels of your apron making a loop at the top. Try it on.. tie a bow.. your done!
