cut a 35"x20" rectangle out of the fabric
from the top, 6" in from each side draw a diagonal line that reaches to 14" down the side
(adjust the 14" so that it is the length of your torso because this is where your pieces to tye the apron will be sewed to)
hem all the edges except 8" up the side from the bottom and across the bottom.
then flip apron over and hem the rest the opposite way than the rest (this will be for the pocket)
fold up that 8" bottom section that you hemmed backwards and sew the sides + up the fabric to make as many compartment/pockets as you want (i did 3)
cut four 25"x3" strips of material
it can be matching or a new pattern if you want to mix it up a bit
fold strips in half ( so they look 1.5" thick and hem along the bottom and inside but LEAVE ONE END OPEN.
now you can use a pen or something to turn the piece in side out so you can't see the cut ends
optional: iron the strips flat
sew the strips at the unhemmed end to the 2 top corners of the apron and where you waist will be (at the corner of the diagonal part)
voila! perfect for cooking, gardening, painting or whatever else people wear aprons for
