How to Make your Mini Pinny / Apron Unique!

If you have been following my blog you may of looked at my “Stitchsharing” guides for both a Mini Pinny and the Maid’s Apron (part of my Magenta’s Rocky Horror Fancy dress costume). Both patterns can be easily adapted to give you various looks.

Take a look!

Here’s my Mini Pinny in a different fabric:

You can make the frill by hand, sewing machine or on an overlocker.

You could use a combination of fabrics to make the ties:

If you keep your neck ties long they are easy to adjust and can either be tied in a bow around your neck or tied with your waist band for a different look:

(Psst….incase you are wondering, the Pinny’s are some of my craft fair makes!)
