The Best Free Apron Patterns on the Net!

I love aprons. Not only are they practical (I always end up with flour head to toe if I neglect to wear one), but they tend to keep me on task. And these days, there are so many fun aprons available, it's tempting to acquire a whole collection for every mood and whim.

My favorite aprons have full coverage, long straps for tying, and never need ironing. The latter is one reason I love aprons made of quilted fabric. Besides, if you're like me and you can never find a pot holder when you need one, a good quilted apron can double as one.

There's quite a market for aprons these days, and many of the most attractive ones are costly. It's not usual to see well made, pretty aprons sell for $40 and up. That's why I've been considering making my own aprons lately, even though I don't have much time to sew. Luckily, the Internet is full of free apron patterns and tutorials. Here are some of the best:

  1. Now I know what to do with all these old t-shirts we don't want to use anymore. Or what fun project I can do with my MOM and daughters this summer.

    thanks for sharing. :)
