I didn't anticipate what a pain this apron would be to make.  I should have guessed though, when I realized I would be sewing on seven yards of 1/4 inch bias tape. Tongue  I kind of hate bias tape. 

It gave me a ton of grief and i had to rip sections out several times, but I'm very happy with the end result.

I used the free pattern found here: http://www.susanbranch.com/shopping/shop5-07/aprontest.pdf







and a silly pic with my uber cool pink spatula...

I love the fabric you used I have this pattern *the McCalls version** but have yet to find the time to make one for myself, I made one of the other aprons in the pattern for two swaps.

I've made that apron!  It is very flattering.  You can also find it in a McCall's pattern.  And yeah, bias tape sucks.
