5 Dainty Tea Apron Patterns: Vintage Hank-afores
Step By Step Instructions For Making Your Hank-afore
Here’s a vintage pamphlet with instructions for making five
different styles of tea aprons that you make from handkerchiefs (you can use finished squares of fabric as well
 –just make sure each are the exact same size…bandanas would work well too).
 The pamphlet was included in a package of 4 handkerchiefs, each were needed to make oneapron. View each of the patterns below, all instructions and pattern piece details are included.
The apron worn by the woman on the cover is the last one (Apron #5). There’s no date anywhereon this vintage treat, but I’m guessing 1940’s. The pamphlet is pretty delicate and worn which
tells me it was used quite a bit.
 Apron #1
 Make two pleats in handkerchief A as indicated and stitch flat.Cut handkerchief B in half. Stitch end to end lapping 1/8 inch making ruffle for one side. Makeruffle for other side in the same manner. Gather 1/4 inch from the upper edges.Stitch ruffles B and C to A as shown above. Draw in gathers so that the ruffles end 2 inches fromapron corners.Cut D into six strips. Join in pairs. One pair for halter
other pairs for belt. Hem edges
stitch toA.
