    What size plate is she using? I have a rounded corner ruler but it still seems like a small curve. Largest on that is 3in.

    Thank you so much! I’ve been looking for a simple tutorial on this for a couple of years.

    Hi Laura, I just attempted making this beautiful apron, I followed all your instructions, the one and only part I’m confused on is when you roll the fabric into the waistband strap!  I don’t get it, I tried it and it resulted in the apron being all bunched up in the top corner and the strap doesn’t pull all the way through.  After several attempts to fix it, I gave up,  Is it possible for you to explain or do another video on exactly what it is you are tucking in the strap?  I would greatly appreciate it. I want to make these for gifts and have several people who want them.  Thank you very much.

    I made this for my sister and sent it to her. She loves it and said it will be very handy for her while she’s gardening. Thank you for the tutorial!

  17. Julie Conlon on December 20, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    What is the measurement of the fabric that you used?

  18. Mary Harker on December 20, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    I’m struggling with sewing the waistband on. I can’t tell from the video how exactly it goes together….

  19. motababe1 on December 20, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    I have been looking for an easy harvest apron for a while now. This one is beautiful and easy to make.

  20. The Mamma on December 20, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    Well if that isn’t just the cutest idea! That’s just what I need, since I seem to drop my wee harvest!

  21. Cathy Kerr on December 20, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    Thank you for the tutorial on this functional apron. I’ve been looking for a simple tutorial and couldn’t find what I had in mind until your video. Thank you thank you thank you!

    😍 love it….for my garden🥒🍆🌶

  23. Jenny Laughlin on December 20, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    Thank you for the easy and comprehensive instructions, I am a total novice and I made one of these for my dad for fathers day, it turned out perfectly, I did make mine longer because I thought the pocket would be too small for harvesting, I will be making myself one for foraging and I will try and add pockets.

  24. Bevoe on December 20, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    Cute and practical. I know a very nice gardener that will love this bag. Thanks for the great, easy to follow tutorial!

  25. Mary Mote on December 20, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    great idea will have to make some

  26. gaylemae on December 20, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    You can sew a smaller button onto the cord to keep your toggle from coming off. Or thread a bead onto the cord before threading the other side thru the casing. This is such a cute apron!

  27. Bonnie Brannon on December 20, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    I’m recovering from a broken hip and have nearly graduated from a walker with a basket to a cane. I have been wondering how I will manage to carry things when using one hand on my cane – this is the perfect solution – thank you, Laura! 🥰👏

  28. Pam Sickles on December 20, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    What Size is your string and your toggle, please!

  29. Heather Buczkowski on December 20, 2020 at 10:06 pm

    Great job! Thanks so much!

  30. Rachel T on December 20, 2020 at 10:06 pm

    Very cute project, but I don’t understand how the waistband is done.

  31. Roxanne Sprehe on December 20, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    Great video, thank you! Waistband was a little tricky, but did it 🙂

    Great video. Wonderful instruction!!! I’ve seen a lot of how-to videos and yours is very well done. Concise and easy to understand. I usually scan over because much of what’s said is redundant but I watched yours all the way through!!!

  36. The Waldens on December 20, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    Thank you such a great idea for a gift for the gardeners in the family!

  41. Sue Leigh 101 on December 20, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    Laura, what great gifts I can make, using cute fabrics that suit each person!
    But oh how I wish I could find that bodkin online! (I don’t presently have a car.) I have to use my android phone to go online (small screen) so I couldn’t read the tiny words on the package. Is there any way you can give me/us enough info to locate one like yours? Thank you in advance!

  42. Asaliha Ange on December 20, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    Lovely apron! ..I started it but now I’m stuck at the sewing of the waist band ….I don’t understand how to sew it all together. I wish the video would show us how to do it. other than this, I’m having fun sewing this apron. And I do thank you for the video. Does anybody know of a tutorial for learning how to sew the waist band?

  43. Midsouth Homestead on December 20, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    Absolutely adorable–your videos are the best! I just finished making one for me; now I will make one for my sister and both of her grandaughters!

  49. Missy Riley on December 20, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    How in the world do you turn the straps right side out??

  50. Katie Sorensen on December 20, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    I want to make something similar, but gathered at the top where the skirt attaches to the waistband. How much wider would I need to make the skirt?
