MY husband wants me to sew him a craft apron, I am wondering if anyone has some suggestions for me.
I would love a place to start, he wants internal pockets, does anyone have a tutorial for pockets?
What fabric is best?

Any suggestions would be welcomed!

Thanks

I replaced my husband's shop apron by making him a new one from cotton duck cloth/canvas.  It has a pocket in the front, not internal, just a rectangle sewn on the front of the chest.

I think you should google images for "shop apron" to get ideas.  Smiley

I did google shop aprons, but my husband is telling me that outside pockets will get full of sawdust, so he wants internal pockets, would just a plain apron pattern work?

It should work...maybe you should have your husband draw a picture of what he wants, then take that to look for patterns.  There are several tutorials online about how to insert pockets, both on the outside of things and hidden pockets (like the ones inside purses and coats).  Good luck!
