I don’t know about you, but I’m a messy cook. And I’ve been known to wipe my hands on my clothes from time to time. This makes apron-wearing a must if I want to have some resemblance of respectability.
I have one apron I really like, but most others that I find are not super absorbent. I like to dry my hands on my apron and not worry about finding a towel.
I live in a house with six children, remember? Towels are hard to come by sometimes. Clean ones, anyway.
So, I realized that it was time to bust out the sewing machine and make myself some aprons. If you can cook and sew — or know someone who does — you might be interested in a free FaveCrafts eBook that includes 8 free apron sewing patterns.
