An apron for me

I've wanted an apron for a while but I could never find a pattern that was exactly what I wanted. It had to be cute, flattering and functional. I came up with this over the weekend, using up bits of things I'd collected over the years. After looking at lots of pictures of aprons I drew up this pattern and voila! I love it! I think I'll make a little wardrobe of these. Hubby likes it too ;)

The solid pink twill and the pink calico are from a friend of mine. She cleaned out her sewing cabinet and gave me two bags of fabric. The white piping is leftover from a long ago project. The rick rack is from the clearance bin many many years ago. I only had 1 yard and I had been waiting for the perfect time to use it. The white is part of an old mis matched sheet. The bib and skirt are both lined in white.
