    I saw this pattern on a few websites. It looks so cute - not that anyone wears aprons anymore.

    I think I could figure it out myself, but if you've made one, let me know how it fits, if it is super easy, etc.

    Thanks!
    Wendy

    Is that your little guy in your avatar? What incredibly blue eyes! Better keep him locked up when he gets to the teen years!

    yeah, he's my little guy...except I let my daughter give birth to him, lol. My grandson Owen, he has incredible blue eyes that just take over some of his pictures, he's a handsome little fellow. I think your right about keeping him locked up in his teens! :lol:

    I have worn an apron since I was on my own. I do not like to mess up my clothes. Now, I can carry my cell phone and cordless phone while around the house or outside working in the garden.

    Some may be surprised. I was only in my mid 20's and discovered while pregnaunt the wonders of an apron. Have made many since. I even make them for Grade school teachers. They too want to save their clothes!

    Thanks for the new pattern!

    Oh yeah alot of people still wear them as for me NOPE only because i ruin my clothes all the time at work so it really doesn't matter to me. But one thing i did notice is that looks like a HUGE log cabin block with a pocket.

    I don't wear an apron myself, but once I took one of the white "chef's" aprons & appliqued flames on the bottom. On the bib part I wrote: "Dinner's done when the smoke alarm sounds!" I gave to my friend's hubby for Xmas one year. :D

    I have made several of these cute 4-Corner aprons - quick for gifts. They are really very flattering and cute on. I taught a kid's sewing class using the children's size pattern, and the kids did great - we left off the pocket to save time and fabric. It would be cute for kids or grandkids to have aprons that match Mom/Grandma.

    At the 2007 Sew Expo in Puyallup, WA, every fabric vendor featured aprons, aprons, aprons. I think it's a fun revival of an old tradition. Some of my favorites are a French Flea Market apron http://www.mkquiltdesigns.com/fleamarketapron.html (three-tiered ruffles) and Indygo Junction aprons, especially "Bon Appetit"

    Have fun!

    I wear an apron every single day. I remember my grandmother wearing them. I have them hanging on the shutters that are between our kitchen/living room. About six of them!! I use regular cotton to make them. I do not iron them ever!! The wrinkles fall out of them as they hang. My husband made fun of me one Saturday - I'd been baking/cleaning/cooking and needed to go to the store... washed up, put on shoes, combed hair, gathered purse/phone and was going out the door - he called me back and suggested I take off my apron!! :) I did. I have made several for gifts. I love to make them and wear them.

    Well, here I am answering my own post.

    I bought the pattern and made 2 so far. They are cute and easy, although they seem big on my 5'4" frame, but okay on my daughter's 5'6" frame (she is the model.) Love those NASCAR pj pants! LOL

    There are so many possibilities with this pattern! I have to make it much smaller for my Grandmother. She is under 5' now and looked like a child in these!

    Thanks, but that is my daughter, Alisia, modeling them. She wouldn't be caught dead behind a sewing machine! Hopefully that grandchild she is carrying will want to do stuff with Nana and Papa (me and Bryan) so that they are handy with either crafts or mechanical stuff.

    I made several more aprons. Not 4 Corners, but they are cute. These are reversible. I am hoping to find some craft fairs locally and make some money for Christmas! They have little pockets just the right size to hold your cell phone or a recipe card.
