    I decided my MIL needed a new apron. Last holiday season she was wearing the one that I had made her over 30 years ago. Oh it looked tired. Here is her new replacement.

    What a nice idea. I'm sure she appreciates it and will think of you each time she wears it.

    Chele ~ Sorry, no it is not a freebe. I bought the pattern while doing a shop hop. The pattern is from Indygo Junction, called Stylish Smock IJ731. It has four adult apron styles and a childrens one. It was simple to make. So with all the options and easy - - well worth the price. Here is Indygo Junctions web site;

    I have worn aprons for 30 years ( all married life) and have made several as gifts. Make them for fun grade school cafeteria replacements of basic ones.

    Love your design ! Thanks for sharing. Oh, yes, What is a MIL?

    Me thinks MIL is "Mother-In-Law" Also have worn aprons for almost 50 yrs and collect old ones. The ones with the organdy and frilly stuff, not much protection from splattering grease or to wipe hands on :lol: Dwynn, yours is a wonderful pattern. Very pretty too.

    Great apron, like the choice of fabrics too. My mother was never without her "pinny".

    I have been into aprons lately because I joined an apron swap on another site. This is a great one. Love the fabrics you chose!
