The printables listed below can be used to make aprons in a range of traditional dolls house scales. If possible follow these suggestions for printing the patterns.

For Paper Aprons - Try to use a lighter weight of printer paper, 20 to 25 lb if possible. Lighter papers can be made into flexible, fabric like textures by crumpling the paper over and over, unfolding it between crumplings. It make take 20 to 30 crumplings in your fist before the paper begins to resemble fabric. You can see more on this technique in the tutorial on making printable paper hats.

For Fabric Aprons - Use a lightweight fabric, fine cotton lawn, worn cotton shirts or other lightweight fabrics. Stiffer or heavier fabrics will not drape convincingly. Instead of gluing the seams as you do for the paper aprons, use a fabric glue or fray check to finish the edges of the fabric and hold the turned over seams to underside of the apron.

Printable Aprons - Choose from the pdf files (acrobat reader required) below to print the aprons in the scale you want to work with.
