The Apron – A most useful piece of clothing

There is something undeniably charming about an apron. 

Aprons have been around for centuries as coveralls meant to protect clothing from everyday spills and tears, but I’m talking about the modern stylized apron.  The apron as a functional accessory, not just a stain catcher.

Like this one that I made, for instance.

I found the pattern for this apron here.  It was part of a vast list of free patterns on Tipnut.com that the author of said blog has taken the time to compile for the benefit of home crafters everywhere.  It took about three hours from start to finish to complete this apron, and the difficulty level was nil.

That, too, is the beauty of the apron!  They are so easy to make, and the variation possibilities are endless.  If you have ever wanted to learn how to sew but didn’t know where to start, make an apron.  If you’re a seasoned crafter and your stash of fabric and scraps is getting over large or out of control (as so often happens), make several aprons.  Each one will be unique and stylish because aprons always are.

And, please, let me know how they come out!
