aprons

I have searched high and low and this is the cutest apron I've found. There's one catch--you have to make it yourself! It was created by blogger Montessori by Hand. I ordered the pattern and am going to start cutting it out today. My goal is to get good enough at this to make it as gifts for the women in my life.

Here are my two favorite high-end online fabric shops: Purl Soho and Sew, Mama, Sew. But I almost always just use Hancocks' fabrics. (No shipping, and something is always on sale!)

Here are a couple of fantastic no-sew options:These are by the seller pretty ditty on one of my favorite websites, etsy. They are $48 each.

They also have really beautiful aprons at anthropologie for around $40. I have one and I love it!

I love the apron! I haven't been inspired to sew for ages...but after seeing that cute apron I'm going to order the pattern and get sewing. What great taste you have!

One of my friends has an apron shop. I think they are great, but she sales out of them the second she gets them so I am always out of luck.
