Today I'm sharing a link to a tutorial by my blogging friend Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose. She shows us how to make this cute and functional half apron - or whatever you call it where you live. :-)
I am not a half apron person because I tend to get stuff on my upper clothes due to splashes and drips. (I'm pretty messy in the kitchen sometimes!) My Gramma Hoover only wore half aprons, though, since she mostly seemed to use them to wipe her hands. So, I'm sure some of my readers will find this a useful apron and I do think it's very cute.
Note: If you don't like the three dimensional aspect of the shabby roses she uses on hers, sew on some wide ribbon or trim of some sort that you like. You can take care of the raw edges on the ends (on the sides, really) by tucking them under and top stitching them down.
