      carol7777, I thought about to the same thing for Christmas, because they only take a yard of fabric and are quick. Thanks for commenting.

      teaches, Thanks for viewing. I use to have the aprons from a place I used to work. I loved though, but we moved and I never found them back. I need to use one of these patterns myself or create my own. Thanks for commenting.

      I have a few aprons that mean much to me and I use them when company comes. My sister made my hubby a great chef's apron with pockets that is really used well. Great share on this topic.
