Here's another apron, like the Buttercup Blossom Apron I posted here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=283582.0.

I'm excited about the fabric in these aprons; I think they're so pretty.

As I've been creating my own patterns, I've been thinking a lot about which areas are most susceptible to wear, and reinforcing them accordingly. For instance, in this one, I've got stitching doubled in some places, in some places the stitch length is 2, in some 3, etc. With something like this, I think it's really important that it hold up to frequent washing.

Comments and questions are very welcome. Thanks for looking!

Yet another great apron made by you. Love the subtle colors/print of the fabric.

Even thow these are not My Style, I love these <3 I like the fact that you've taken wearability and durability into consideration by making the reinforcements. Did you really make the bias yourself? Looks like it from the pictures. I mean the bias surrounding the pocket.

Anyways, nice work. Very precise. And the stitches are aligned very well. Great job!

Thanks! I did make the binding myself, but it's not bias binding this time, just straight.

that fabric is amazing indeed, and I admire your craftmanship

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.
