The perfect apron!

I found this book the other day at the fabric store.
I opened it up and loved the aprons I saw in side.
I sat there and debated if I wanted to but another apron book that I would have to get the patterns re-sized and pay 8 dollars a pattern.
So I investigated further and was suprised that there were full sized patterns in the back.
All I would have to do is trace them on to pattern paper or wrapping paper as I like to use.
I was sold.
with my 40% off coupon the book only cost $11. well worth the 23 patterns.
I plan on makeing this sweet apron today.
So what projects are you all working on?

I LOVE that apron! Why do you have to re-size the patterns?

Yeah, I so hate it when cool apron books have you taking their patterns to Kinkos to have them enlarged at $8.00 a pop.

However, this book sounds like a gem!

No projects. My sewing machine power cord is missing and I still haven't been able to finish what I started a year ago before I moced here and lost my cord. :(

I love the book and can't wait to see everything you make from it.
