    I have been seeing a lot of double posting of photos but don't know why. Aprons are cute !! Love the red rick rack on the curving hem of your last apron.

    Wish I could get into the habit of wearing an apron, especially while eating as I always wear my meal!!
    Yours are inspirational!

    They look like adorable little sundresses. Very cute pattern and like the deep pocket.

    I miss the days when grandma's always wore an apron. I don't know why I found it so comforting. I remember my Grammie's being pastel checks. Those are so pretty. I wear a top sleeveless smock when I cook, it helps when I eat too

    came out beautiful, lots of work
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I have a wrap around blue denim apron that i've had for almost 30 years. Even the grandkids know that when the apron comes out of the drawer some serious baking, canning or major meal preparation is about to happen!

    I love your aprons --- and hope that someone is still wearing and appreciating them 30 years from now !!!
    Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.

    I love them all. My favorite one is the black and yellow one, however, the one with the striped fabric is pretty awesome too.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Very, very nice aprons, and so well made! I remember as a child seeing aprons more commonly worn, but laundry wasn't done as often then as it today, so aprons kept the women's dresses clean longer, and made for less laundry.

    I love the blue one with the vertical stripes. How often does a woman find a garment with vertical stripes and of all the places to look thin, it should be in the kitchen!!!!! They are darling. I love aprons! Edie

    I must be a grandma -- I've taken to wearing an apron when I'm in the kitchen. I think they are making a comeback! You've made some nice ones -- I like your color combinations.

    Your aprons are just darling! I wear them all the time for cooking and cleaning. First thing I was taught to do learning to cook was to wash my hands and put on an apron! I wear them so much, the kids accuse me of wearing like a dress. But they do save my clothes and definitely get me in the "mood" to work!

    I love aprons; don't always wear one when I'm cooking, but do when I'm "messy" cooking/baking. Love your aprons.
