Ever since I completed the Zinnia apron a few weeks back, I am noticing aprons everywhere. The last time was in Southern Living July 2010 in their Made by Southern Hands article.
The body of the apron looks to be about 3/4 of a hand towel with fabric ruffle and tie. I might try to attempt to make one with an old towel for practice. Possibly change the design a bit and add a pocket. You will have to wait and see what I come up with or you can buy it at www.jenrosidesigns.com . They are $36 for adult sizes and $26 for child sizes,she makes bibs and aprons for men too. Take a look and come back and see how mine turns out!
