Teacher Aprons Are My Latest Pandemic Sewing

A few weeks ago a friend of mine who is a teacher contacted me to ask me if I would consider sewing teacher aprons. I had no idea but these are much needed during the pandemic. Teachers have a lot of extra things to carry and manage throughout the day such as hand sanitizer, which they need to squirt on the elementary school kids’ hands, masks and all the other usual things like white board pens, phone, keys and so on.

Teachers are wanting aprons to help manage all these things, stay organized and keep their hands free. Maybe you know a teacher who would like one for Christmas.

My friend wanted her aprons made from this free tutorial on the Crafty Staci blog and so that is what I used. These also make fantastic vendor aprons for when we can do craft shows again.

I created a YouTube video tutorial on how to sew these as it can be a bit tricky following along on a blog post sometimes. I made the Library Books themed one below on the video. The pattern and written instructions are on the Crafty Staci blog.

I have a teacher aprons section in my Etsy shop where you can find these aprons available to purchase. I received some teacher themed fabrics I ordered on Spoonflower with math, science and general teaching motifs so more aprons will be coming soon.

I so appreciate my friend coming to me with this idea as I would have never thought of it! She loves her math themed aprons so it was a win/win for both of us. 🙂
