🌱 This will be your new favorite Garden Apron Sewing Pattern. Learn how to sew your very own 5 pocket garden apron with this comprehensive DIY tutorial.

Growing up, my sister, brother and I always bought my mom petunias for the flower boxes for Mother’s Day. She and my dad planted a garden a few times but I’m embarrassed to say I don’t remember what they grew! Maybe cucumbers and tomatoes? Whatever it was I have fond memories of my mom wearing dirty garden gloves and usually sporting a little dirt on her forehead from brushing her hair out of her face.

Personally I’m more of a potted flower gardener. How I manage to misplace my tools as I work is a mystery but the problem will be solved with my new apron!

A garden apron made from someones favorite colors would be a heartfelt Mother’s Day gift, birthday gift or holiday gift and is the perfect gift for anyone who loves to play in the dirt!
