The perfect way to dress up any simple project is to add a dresden flower. Dresden flowers look fancy and difficult, but with the right tools, it’s easy! I made this simple apron for my cute niece today, but it needed something to dress it up. Adding the dresden flowers to the pockets was the perfect finishing touch.
Now the fun part — making it cute! I cut my pockets 6.5 inches square, serged all 4 edges, and pressed the edges under. Top stitch along the top of the pocket. I used this awesome dresden template from Nancy’s Notions to make the flowers. The best part about this ruler is that you can make so many different sizes of flowers, with only one ruler. I cut my pedals 2 inches. It’s a big template, but it still works great for small pieces!
I top stitched around my edges and added my center circle. Now my pocket is ready to be sewn onto the apron.
