I am going to be volunteering for an annual food festival in June, and I am going to need an apron. Fortunately all of my aprons are both boring and gross, so I just had to make myself a new apron. With Ruffles.
I made up my own  pattern for it, then winged it from there. Here are some low-quality webcam shots of it:

It's so hard to take self-portraits with a webcam; I had to click the button, then jump back as fast as possible.  I think these two pictures were the best out of about a dozen attempts XD

so cute! I've been thinking about making myself a ruffly apron for ages, but I'm just too damn lazy! Yours look great, maybe it can inspire me to get started haha Smiley Is it just regular cotton fabric?

When it's 1 am and you can see dancing elephants in the texture of your carpet, it's probably time to go to bed...

Super-cute apron! And I love the way the second picture is an "action shot" - the bottom corner is still in motion from you leaping backwards!

Crochet uses a hook. Pirates have hooks, and they are cool. So crochet is cool because of the hook.

Thank you guys for the compliments  Grin!
@ jloveg; that's actually my little sister's bed, I think my grandma got that quilt for her.

@Phyxious: It's a stretchy cotton I got from Hancock's, I didn't notice until I got home , but it's actually a Disney fabric...Without Disney characters, go figure!

@Breninja: Thanks  Grin I'm actually not wearing any camo in those pictures, just a green sweatshirt and an armyish hat - My Boss told me I looked like a hobo when I got to work that morning XD
