Today I received the fabric that will allow me to forge ahead on a few aprons commissions, which is terrific fun. My friend Kim was kind enough to send me snaps of one I made for her as a gift to a pair of newlyweds. He preferred the “girl” side — Asian tattooes, skulls, and gold rickrack. The lovely bride preferred the “guy” side — wheels. I think they’re both terrific models.
But just because I didn’t have the goods to start aprons I know I’ll get paid for didn’t mean I slacked off. Here are two holiday numbers I made for stock:

I decided to go trad with this one, identical to the first apron I ever made in Home Ec class.
A buddy said that I should mention that my aprons are for sale. Let me know if one interests you!
