I saw the first picture of these in an apron swap here on Craftster.  I knew right then that I HAD to have this pattern.  I ended up making one for my SIL, one for an ex-neighbor, and 3 for my little girls.  I had a real learning curve with the bias tape at first, but I think I finally got it down by the 5th one.  :-)  I just joined this MB a couple of days ago (though a long-time lurker) and this is my first attempt to post pics, so we'll see how it goes.  The first is some vintage cherry fabric I found at Joann's.

This one is made from a sheet I picked up at a thrift store a couple of years ago.  I LOVE this fabric.

This is my attempt to do smaller aprons for my girls.  After spending a lot of time cutting the pattern down for my oldest, I didn't want to repeat that for my other two.  I ended up cutting out a panel for each of the smaller girls to make the apron shorter.  The last one is missing a lot of the character of the original pattern, so I might do it differently next time.

Oooohhhh! I did one of these for the kitchy kitchen swap. I wasnt in it but I angeled and I made one for my FOC Secret Swap! I love them you did an excellent job! Ill have to post the ones I did in their own thread too. I love this pattern. The bias was a pain but only on the very curvy bottom part.

Oh I love these!  I made one of these for the Buy Nothing Swap back in November and I had a terrible time with the bias tape on mine too!  I use a lot of bias tape and I've never had trouble using it until I made this so I promise, it's usually not hard to use.  Great job!

Thanks for the compliments.  I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one that struggles with bias binding.  I never wear an apron (I prefer to just make a mess of my clothes, I guess), but after making these for everyone else, I'm starting to think I should.  :-)
