At the beginning of the year a friend posted this on facebook:  Pay It Forward 2011!
I promise to send something handmade to the first 5 people who leave a comment here. To be eligible, you must also post this status, offering the same thing to 5 other people. The rules are that it must be handmade by you and it must be sent to your 5 people some time in 2011.

I jumped on that!  And these are the first three things I made to send the people who signed up for mine.  Of course...I've decided to keep one for myself, so that means I have to come up with something else for the other people who signed up.

I used simplicity pattern 2272 I did change it in that I switched the waistband to the apron fabric instead of keeping in the same as the overlay.  I like the way it breaks it up.  The pattern was easy to follow, but it did waste quite a bit of fabric.  It's ok, now I have lots of cute scrap fabric.

Anyhow.  Pictures!

This is the one I'm keeping:

I love this idea. They look great, the people who receive them are very lucky.
Also those fabrics ROCK! Ive never found fabrics like that.

What a great idea. The aprons are really cute & the fabrics you've found for them are ideal.

I found the main fabrics at a little fabric store here in Chicago called The Needle Shop that I have two groupons for!  Yay discounts!  The contrast fabric was all from JoAnn.

I'm thinking about matching potholders, too!

Love that fabric with the mixers on it! That's the one I would have kept for myself, too!

I've been talked into making an Alice costume and this will make a great apron to add to it, thanks for sharing
