French Grain Burlap Baker’s Apron

Happy Monday!  How was your weekend?  Ours was busy but I managed to sneak in a few little projects.   Last Wednesday, I received an order that I placed with Online Fabric Store for two burlap French Grain Sack Reproduction bags.   I paid $9.80 a piece which I didn’t think was bad at all.  And guess what the best part was…. they had no smell!

 French Grain Sack Reproduction

I made a baker’s apron with one of the French Grain burlap bags over the weekend.


This was soooo easy to make!  I cut the French Grain burlap bag at the seams and I drew the armhole cuts, freehand by pencil, on the front side the burlap.  I then cut my apron form and used fabric glue to attach a wide black bias tape around it.  I used my sewing machine to attach the neck and waist strap to the apron.  If you’re looking to make a “no sew apron” you could use fabric glue to attach them.    



For now, I have it on the frig.


But I’ll move it over here once I re-do this area of my kitchen.


I have another burlap bag and I just might have to make an apron for my daughter-in-law to hang in her kitchen. 


I think one would look nice in there….don’t you? 

As always, thanks for your visit and your sweet comments.  They just make my day!

  1. Love your apron. I have two of those bags, too and one has a pillow form in it, but they are both just tossed in a basket for now.

  2. It is a pretty apron Gail. I love having an apron hanging in the kitchen.

  3. Oh my gosh Gail I love it and yes I think one would look fabulous in your DIL's kitchen!!

  6. Really cute idea. And, I agree - one for your daughter in law would look awesome by her cabinet (oh I love that cabinet! As well, I love yours!)

  7. How was the shred factor when you cut into it?
