The second outfit I made for Project Paperdoll is a three-for-one special and is inspired by Cut Out + Keep's crafty superhero, Crafterella with a comic strip skirt, fan girl top and costume style kitchen apron!

The final pattern is for a kitchen apron designed in the style of Crafterella's costume with a bodice style top and tool belt bottom, measuring tape neck strap and pockets full of kitchen utensils. The design is printed on sturdy cotton duck fabric and includes all the cutting and folding lines needed to make the apron, so it's a breeze to construct. It's available to buy now from from Fabric On Demand.

    Flip the straps over so that the wrong side is facing up and fold all the edges in along the marked line. Press in place.
