Thanks to  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417397.0
I have managed to complete my apron today Smiley
I used a large curtain I bought at a charity shop (bargain at 1.50) and in fact the thread came from there too. To be honest, the fabric is probably a little too heavy, hence it doesnt hang quite so well - but on the upside it will be hard wearing = which is great for wandering around the farms picking vegetables in the Summer !
We have some lovely heather in our garden and I wanted to accent the apron with a little of that colour, hence the purple borders on the pocket.
I have to admit, that Im not the finest machine sewer and in fact, up until recently have sewn everything by hand !!!! But a little tender loveing help from the elder in the machine repair shop means i can finally give my hand sewn fingers a break !

Any how, thanks again for the tutorial, Im sure a couple of friends will be yearning for one of these soon

Soooo pretty! I love those colors together! You did an awesome job and I agree that the heavier fabric will be better to last a long time and be less apt for something to seep through to your clothes anyway! Good work!

Heavy fabrics is the shit =) mine is rather heavy too, and it's brilliantly sturdy since I can spread the apron like a basket and carry loads of stuff without worrying about the fabric breaking.
