Barbie Holiday (or Any Day) Apron, Curvy or Standard Doll, Free Pattern, No-Sew Tutorial

Bakers everywhere are stocking up on flour and sugar... And Barbie's ready to join them in the kitchen:) These cute holiday aprons are simply cut from one piece of fabric and the ribbon or rick rack trim is hot glued on. The aprons can tie around the doll's neck and waist, or I chose to hot glue a little velco to the ends of the ribbon to make it easier to dress and undress the doll. The best part, this free pattern will work with both standard and curvy Barbies.
This is another project that only requires a 6" square of fabric and some ribbon from your stash.
No fabric? The aprons can be made from felt or recycle an ~old~ shirt or pair of pants.
I love this type of project folks😉

Use the pattern as a guide, make it longer or shorter to suit your tastes.
(I wanted mine long enough to show the silly turkeys.)
 My ribbon measurements are for if you want to close the apron with velcro.
You'll need a lot more ribbon if you want to tie the apron on.

6" piece of fabric
22" ribbon or rick rack, you'll trim as needed after gluing onto apron.
5"  ribbon or rick rack for waist
1 1/2" ribbon or rick rack for top of apron, optional
hot glue (or Liquid Stitch works great, but that will take longer to dry)
button, glitter or sequin embellishments if desired
Our models: A thrift store Halloween Enchantment Barbie, and Made to Move Curvy Barbie.

Save pattern to computer. Use scroll wheel on mouse until line equals 1".
Print out or place paper on computer screen and gently trace pattern, cut of of paper.
Cut one apron from fabric of choice.

Fold fabric over 1/4" if not using ribbon/rick rack on the top of the apron. Glue hem. If using ribbon/rick rack (the green apron), glue the 1 1/2" piece to the top of the apron first.
Glue the 22" ribbon/rick rack starting at the center of the bottom of the apron. Continue gluing up sides of apron.

For waist, glue 5" ribbon across apron under the square bib part.

Trim ribbon if needed and glue a small bit of velcro onto ends.
Dress doll and bake some cookies!
