I make or buy new aprons periodically. They aren’t investment pieces, right? Aprons are meant to be worn, to get dirty, to get worn out. I usually have one that I wear basically every day while I’m cooking dinner, and a couple others hanging just for fun. Maybe a lightweight one for when canvas is too hot, or a cute vintage one just because. I had a purchased sturdy canvas one that had been a favorite for a year or so, but it was starting to look like I’d cooked a few too many meals in it. For my new one I just cut around the last one to replicate the shape. I used this cute Premier Prints Arrow fabric from Fabric.com (I know, more arrows! I can’t help it.) And I put my name on it with the embroidery machine because why not? The big improvement I made over the last one I had was that I added a nice, deep pocket to the front. Now the the only reason I’ll have food smeared all over the front of my clothes is the fact that I live with a 2-year-old.
