I love cooking and baking and I love aprons.
But you wouldn't know it if you visited: I have one apron that craftylittlemonkey gifted me when she sent me goodies for my sprog (if you're reading this CLM, thanks again! Kiss).
So I decided I needed to make myself another apron and set about finding a pattern. I found this one on Craftsy that only uses one yard of fabric to make a simple apron. I didn't put a pocket on it because I didn't feel like fussy cutting Tongue Also, I made a loop for the top instead of ties for around the neck. I hate aprons that tie around the neck.

I hope to update with a photo of me wearing it, if I can get my hubs to take a pic for me.
As soon as I get myself some cotton batting, I'm going to make a matching pair of oven mitts, as well as a pair of oven mitts to match the apron CLM gave me.

I love simple aprons and yours is so fun. You might want to look into insulbrite batting for your potholders.

Awesome! I have made aprons in the past, it's very satisfying to be able to get one up in a favourite fabric rather than the meh stuff that's out there for sale most of the time. Great job Smiley.

Make sure to use some insulbrite in the oven mitts, batting lets a lot of heat through but reflective material is really great for mitts and hot pads. I learned about that stuff here, of course Cheesy.

ETA ha ha, cross post with Mel. Great minds think alike after all Wink.

I'm not online as much as I used to be, don't panic if it takes a while for me to reply to things Smiley.

Thanks everyone Kiss

Mel, CLM: don't worry, I do have some Insul-Brite. I just don't have any batting, which the Insul-Brite says to use along with it. I thought I had some flannel that I could substitute (by layering it) but I can't find it. I may have given it to my mom or sister.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Never! Grin And I'm planning on sewing one for my husband for when he's grilling. I just have to find a fabric that he likes.
