Easy Half Apron

I Heart HALF APRONS!
Well, I've been wanting to make a cute hostess apron/half apron for a long time now, so when one of my friend's birthday's came up it gave me the motivation to find some good apron patterns online.  There are actually quite a few hostess apron tutorials that look good, but since I don't have a lot of time, I tried to pick on that wasn't too complicated.  I used the Quick and Easy Apron Tutorial from a Feathered Nest, a new blog I just found through my search for free apron patterns and am LOVING it!!!  Now, it probably should have gone a bit quicker but I sometimes can't figure out if I'm just not comprehending instructions well or if they aren't clear to begin with...but it was pretty simple and easy to figure out...I think my brain was just fried!  Anyways, it was fun and I can't wait to go fabric shopping and make more!  I need one of these! :)


Cute half apron!  I love that it ties in front!

And if you aren't into sewing but want some apron fun, check out these funky retro hostess aprons...

I'm glad you like the apron! :) I just made 2 more aprons, one for my sister, and the I made an apron for myself and a matching one for Jordan with the extra material! After making one, this apron is super easy to make! And I like that...I'm so impatient!
