So, one of my sisters has been into baking artisan breads lately.  She'd been admiring my zest for sewing lately, and so I asked her if there was anything she wanted.  She said she wanted an apron. 

I've got tons of terry cloth towels that I've been hoarding for craft projects, so I thought they'd make a pretty stellar apron. 

Cut it out and sewed in about an hour and a half.  Very gratifying!

The top and bottom are made from two different towels, and I just zig-zagged around the edges to prevent fraying. 

It doesn't fit the best, but rather I'm too lazy to take it apart and reconstruct.   Tongue   Plus, if she's half as messy as I am in the kitchen, the more it covers, the better!

The belt is from an old bathrobe and the part that goes around the neck is from two t-shirt neckbands. 

The pockets are made from these little kids wash cloths I got at the dollar store - each one has information on different sea creatures.  I chose the sharks and whales ones for this apron (mostly because the colors matched the towels best).

I think I'm hooked on making aprons.
