A is for adorable and amazingly irresistible and incredibly attractive : who would have imagined that the apron, that charming and nostalgic symbol of domesticity, would become today's must-have home accessory? But it most certainly is, as stitchers and crafters flock to these creative canvases as the perfect vehicle for showcasing fabulous fabric, simple embellishments, and novel ideas. These ingenious projects--from ultra-feminine and vintage chic to whimsical color-play--include waist and bib aprons, pinafores, smocks, cobblers, and even something for the pint-sized cook. All of the projects are photographed in a playful style. And templates, sewing basics, and quick and easy projects for sprucing up store-bought aprons and whipping up aprons from recycled materials are here too!

"25 Fresh Designs"??? I think not! I'll soon be celebrating my 60th birthday & 90% of the designs in this book looked just like the ones my grandmothers made for themselves.

Great ideas for aprons. Made an apron and modified own pattern since enlarging was a bit of a bother.

Love this book! Easy designs for a novice sewer like me, yet cool looking and funky enough for gifting. No wonder I always have to wait for a couple of weeks to get my copy in. Well worth the wait.

Great patterns and lots of them! There is an apron in this book for every figure type!
P.S. If you know me, you are getting an apron for xmas.

A great apron pattern book. Every kind of pattern you might ever want. Pattern sheets are included (and do not require enlarging!)
