Spooky Halloween Apron

By: Debbie Cleek for Baby Lock

Sew a spooky Halloween apron to protect your clothing from the bubbling cauldron! This free sewing apron pattern from Baby Lock shows you how.

Spooky Halloween Apron

  • Designer’s Gallery Studio III installed on your computer (or CustomWorks II optional)
  • All Hallows Eve- ADP-70J by Amazing Designs
  • Black apron
  • Temporary spray adhesive
  • Tear Away Stabilizer
  • Medium Hoop (130mm x 180mm) Air Erasable Fabric Marker Ruler
  • Rotary Cutter
  • Small Scissors
  • All-purpose sewing thread
  • Assortment of Madeira embroidery thread

  • Crystal Applicator Wand


  1. At the computer: Open Studio III and browse the design collection All Hallows Eve-ADP-70J.
  2. Select design AH23 and click to send it to Studio Layout. Select the design, then, under Edit, select copy. Under Edit, select paste to make a total of six stars. Arrange the starts in a row, spacing them evenly.
  3. Click Save, then Exit to send the design to Studio III.
  4. Next, select design AH05 and click to send it to ColorWorks.
  5. Select and remove the colors that make up the cat portion of the design. This starts with color #6.
  6. Click Save, the Exit to send this design to Studio III. With this design selected, send it to Layout.
  7. Select the design, then, under Edit, select Copy. Under Edit, select Paste making a second row of fence. Arrange the fence rows so it is one continuous row of fencing.
  8. Minimize Layout, taking you back to Studio III. Select design AH15 and send it to Layout. Maximize Layout and select Next to bring the design onto the design page.
  9. Select the design, then, under Edit, select copy. Under Edit, select paste making a second leaf. Arrange the leaves so they fill in some of the blank space left on the fence from removing the cat.
  10. Select design AH13 and click to send it to Studio Layout. Select this design and position it so the pumpkin is sitting on the fence covering the remaining area where the cat was removed. It can be slightly on top of the leaf as well. Repeat this using design AH14.
  11. Click Save, then Exit to send the design to Studio III.
  12. Print templates for the designs that have been created along with design AH17.
  13. Using the Air Erasable Fabric Marker and the printed templates, mark the desired placement for the designs onto the apron. Place the row of stars and the moon on the bib of the apron and the fence with the pumpkins coming out of the pocket.
  14. Note: If your apron doesn’t have a pocket, just add one using a simple fabric rectangle. Make it even more fun using a piece of Halloween print.
  15.  Hoop the tear-away stabilizer in the 130mm x 180mm hoop. Following the specifications for your machine; load the star design onto your machine. Spray the stabilizer with temporary spray adhesive and attach the top of the apron to the stabilizer. Use the center marks to center it in the hoop. Stitch the design, remove from the hoop and tear away the excess stabilizer.
  16. Repeat for the remaining designs.
  17. Embellish with crystals around the moon as desired.
