I made this cute cape out of this fantastic fabric I found, and decided after wearing it as a cape, it could be an apron too!
Enjoy the photo's and below is a tute.




Step 1.
Fold your fabric in half and measure at the top and bottom to 20-30" depending on how big you want it to be. I used 22". Mark. Use a yardstick, tape measure, whatever, and measure 22" from the central point and do this all the way around until you have half of a circle. Cut it out.

Step 2.
Keep it folded in half and do the same thing, only for the neck part. I used 6", but you can use more or less.

Step 3.
Hem the edges, or add a fabric to the inside and hem.

Step 4.
Cut out 2 long strips of material, I cut out 6" high and 20" long and folded them in half so they were 3" high, and sewed, and then turned them inside out. This will be the tie of the cape-ron.

Step 5. Attach the straps you just made to each side of the neck, and your cape-ron is done!
