I have a few, picked up for practically nothing at a local thrift store back in Pa. I haven't made any since I was in middle school. Why bother, they can be picked up anywhere? Although, I have to say there are some really amazing fabrics out there that would be fun to make aprons out of. Tammy made us some cool ones last year for the Girls Weekend.
this is Tammy's mother, Ruth Canfield, modeling her apron. I can't find a picture of me in mine.
I tend to wipe my hands on my aprons- isn't that what they're for? But I mean, with stuff like paint and ink that doesn't come out. It's a fine line between function and not wanting to ruin them.
I had this little apron on the other day. It's soft and worn, and probably handmade. The fabric is definitely from another era! But it hides dirt well.
