All about aprons!
sommerdesigns' Blue Willow Apron on flickr.
Are you all ready to start your aprons? Hope you've got some designs and fabrics in mind already! Just remember, the All Purpose and Kitchen Tested apron needs to be practical and functional (no matter how sassy and cute it might be); and it needs to be wash-and-wear, able to survive many trips through the washer and dryer. Pre-washing of fabrics, notions, and maybe even the finished apron may be a good idea here. (Although please use no scented products when washing & drying -- washing alone with no products at all is probably best!)
Here's some inspirations if you haven't made your choices yet:
tons of links to photos from Red Current to drool over
Amy Karol's fabulous Tie One On apron challenge
aprons at anthropologie
some free online patterns
some links to really cool articles, shops and sites about vintage aprons (found on a blog that's new to me but looks interesting, btw!)
more resources can be found at Vintage Retro Aprons
a history of aprons from the Saturday Evening Post
And there are tons of aprons on flickr, but if you want to narrow it down a bit try these searches: handmade aprons; vintage aprons; apron patterns; the vintage apron pattern group; and the vintage apron group.
