    Those are really cute. Love your fabric choices. Are you giving them as gifts or using yourself? I have been making aprons lately. I think it has become an addiction for me.

    That's how I got started (addicted to) making aprons too. After the first one, I made a pattern from my favorite and went from there. Every one is a little different - pocket size & placement, ruffle, reversible or not. For 1 of the reversible ones, I had the fabrics right side together ready to sew and decided to cut the bottom 7 or 8 inches off and sew them back to the other coordinating fabric (does that make sense?) before finishing. Love your cheerful aprons.

    yes, that makes sense. The dark one will be a gift. I may hang onto the rose one in case i want to make another. or at least make a tissue pattern of it.

    Nice looking apron! My girlfriend asked me to put a loop on the front of her aprons so she could loop a dishtowel through it.

    Really pretty aprons. May make some for myself after seeing yours. I still have aprons that were my mothers and she had been dead many years. I cherish them.
