Apron Love



I bought this pattern a few years ago, thinking that some day, I'm going to make some aprons.

The fabric came from Spool, a shop in Philadelphia. It's a bit thicker fabric than the typical quilting stuff at Joann's, which makes it just perfect for use in my apron.

I like this pattern, because it's got lots of shaping seams. The apron hugs the body, unlike some other bib apron designs, which are floppy and fit only when one ties them tightly.

A beautiful apron and a charming and informative video! I agree with Kay--I love the "design feature" pockets!

This is just too curious. I bought that pattern just a few weeks ago, and I just washed up a bunch of fabrics to make aprons!

Your aprons are fabulous!

The pockets are my favorite detail and you know why! So many of my best "ideas" are unexpected!
I love the fabric combination and flattering lines of the apron...why hide a great shape under a shapeless garment??
Keeping in mind the utilitarian nature of the apron and changing the suggested sewing directions reminds us to "think outside the seams" and make the garment to suit ourselves. You inspire me. Nice job Barbara!
