So I have been making Christmas aprons! On Christmas eve morning/day we all go to my grandmother's house and make cookies. I have been making aprons to wear this year, I am a newbie sewer so this task seemed perfect to practice on. It usually isn't that messy but my two cousins now have two little kids each so the messiness has increased exponentially! Here are the first few I have made.

This first one is made from simplicity 4282. Oh, and I have been buying up as many apron patterns as I can find when they are on sale for $2 each. Eventually I will get around to trying most of them. I find many call for bias tape, which I don's find hard to use but i thought it would be cool to use the little tool to make my own so it would be polka dot. That was rough.

The second one is Simplicity 2492. I also have the book "A is for Apron" and the designer I believe has both of these aprons in here also, but for $2 for the pattern was much easier than trying to blow up the images in the back of that book. I love the look of this one. Im a big girl, and even the large size seemed a bit small to me, but I love the shape.

These two aprons were made using the tutorial by Peacelovenbecca found here : http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=327529.0

The snowmen my sister picked out.

This last apron is one I just made myself. It is reversible, I photographed it so you could see the two sides. The red side has a black pocket with 4 small short holes to store frosting tips when I am decorating cakes/cookies.

The first one is beautiful.  And I really like that reversible one too.
