Like your aprons! I made a few yrs. ago but found I am simply not a person who uses an apron much.

Those aprons are really cute. My last half apron was a knock off from an apron my aunt had. blog and photos. I also don't wear aprons much, but do like them.

This apron is on my to-do list retro apron
I'm not a big apron wearer. But, for some reason I like the look of this apron (I'm thinking it is because my grandma (who was the "bestest" grandma ever) had one like this).

Adorable!

I made a black tuxedo apron (and a little black bowtie on elastic!) for when I do food service at my church. I look very formal and professional which works out great for attendees because if anyone needs help, it's easy to spot me. I put in plenty of custom pockets (like a long one for that clicky thing that you use to light up the sterno cans), loops for tongs and towel, even a zipper pocket hidden inside so I can carry my keys and wallet around with me.

I love all the aprons.
One Christmas everyone on my list received his and hers aprons.
I used denim or sambra cloth and embellished them with something that fit the wearer. It is heartwarming to go somewhere for dinner, and see the host wearing the apron I made for them!

I am such a messy cook that an apron with a bib is a must! I also have very large girls. I just copied an apron I had and made the bib bigger (wider). I used coordinating fabric with colours I loved and added pockets. The pockets are bound with with same binding I used for all the other ties.

Can't wait to make another. The bib does not fit as well as I would like. I need to add some darts for better fit - and alas - cooking coverage. The fabric possibilities are so just much fun for making aprons.
