    Thanks for the pattern. It resembles the free carpenters aprons that lumber companies gave away back in the day. Of course, we have used ours all up. They didn't have the loops for hanging tools is the main difference I see. My husband still putters around, and he doesn't like the leather carpenter apron. They are just too bulky and heavy. Now to go find some manly fabric (they used to only come in a light beige) and make a couple - one for him and one for me.

    Thank you for the pattern link. I sew for a boutique to benefit our local crises pregnancy center and am always looking for new ideas. This is a great one. I have copied it off.

    I have a friend who just gave me about 30 plants for my yard and for my niece's. I was wondering how to thank her and this apron looks like it would be a wonderful gift.

    Thanks for posting it.
