Barbie Holiday -or Any Day Apron, Curvy too & Elf on the Shelf, Free Pattern, No-Sew Tutorial

As we're getting closer to the holidays I wanted to share my Free Pattern for Easy No-Sew Barbie Aprons! This is a fun little craft that comes together in no time and only requires 6" of fabric, ribbon and some hot glue. It fits standard and Curvy Barbie, ~and~ just in time for his day after Thanksgiving arrival... It fits Elf on the Shelf too:@) And of course they could be made using any fabric, it doesn't have to be a holiday print. Much like me, Barbie says she's ready for some Christmas cookies!
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.

What I did:
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!

A version for the summer holidays:
Ken's bar back, short apron:
Honestly, it's a rectangle of fabric with ribbon glued to the top for a tie... 
Pretty self-explanatory:@)
