One little, two little, three little aprons...

My husband and I recently were on our favorite cheap date: hanging out at Barnes & Noble. We love going there and perusing the books, and that is where I look at alot of books I am interested in, but get to preview them first. Some books I'll read about and it seems really good, but then when I look over them at the bookstore they don't interest me anymore. Saves on alot of disapointing purchases! Anyway, we were there last week and I came across this book:


A is for Apron by Nathalie Mornu.

It had so many cute aprons and patterns in it that I got it that night. (Usually I get things at the library to read, or on ebay if I know I want to keep it- lots cheaper!) It has not disapointed me, and unlike some craft books there are not just 2, or 3 cute ones, but the majority of the aprons are really darling. This last week I made three aprons, that were easy to make and super cute. Hope you like them as much as I do! I was pretty proud, becuse I haven't sewn many clothes items, mostly quilts.





My poses were a little goofy, I had to set the timer, as I was alone when taking these pics!
