  18. Steph @ Tart Deco

    Hi. I sent a comment already about my apron, which is #20, but I am thinking that you didn’t get it. I would also send you an email, but your contact information doesn’t link anywhere. I am flattered that you think my apron is cute enough to include in your post but the link was not for a free apron pattern, just a link to an apron I made for a swap.Can you please remove my picture? Thank you.

  19. Sierra Samson

    Awesome! Thanks for the patterns. I’ve been working on a few half aprons recently, here’s a link to my pictures… http://sosamson.com/the-simple-life/. It just makes sense to look good while you cook!

    Apron #2 is exactly what I’m looking for but the link doesn’t seem to work for me……what am i doing wrong?
    Thanks for your help.

    These are some gorgeous apron patterns you have accumulated here. I am personally interested in the #2 style. Thanks for bringing some of those great old memories of cooking with my Mother when I was a child.

    Thanks for this post. I want to make aprons for my mom, sister, and sister in laws for Christmas and I can’t wait to try some of these! I can’t decide if I should make us all the same one or different aprons to reflect personalities!
    I have three boys also! Great site, I can’t wait to explore it more and tell my crafting family about it!

  23. Alyssa

    This is a really great page. The link for #2 (the one I really want) is for an invite only site. Is there a way you could email me the information?

  24. Amber

    #2 is exactly what i am looking for!! But I can’t get to the page, could i have the directions sent to me as well? Thanks in advance!
