Anyway, I started a pin board with a few aprons that I liked. This time, I used the free pattern and tutorial from here: http://thecraftsdept.marthastewart.com/2010/06/apron-tutorial.html
next time, I am going to draft my own that will have an oval bottom that curves upwards towards the back, and a nice pretty ruffle.
The embroidery frame around my name is my own digitized design.
My tiny, little 24 yo daughter is being gracious enough to model it for me.
