So, long story short, it turns out there is a whole world of 'apron people' out there and (for) now they are my people. At the same time as I was working on my aprons Angry Chicken was holding a No $ Apron giveaway. It's easy for me to make no $$ aprons (all supplies from my stash; nothing bought from the store) given that I am caring for a newborn so I don't leave the house for much of anything. So, I submitted my aprons, which are displayed on her flickr set and then discovered other apron makers like this and this (amazing right!). A beautiful find.
In other news, made these easy curtains for our bathrooms out of old Ikea curtains and have just enough fabric left over for a mother's day apron, though it might be a little late.
