Finally this apron has a home and is ready for use.. all but the waist tie, but it's there, it's finished! I've been waiting to use it..but now I'm realizing it needs some good use, so my jeans and multiple hand towels can take a break from the constant wipe here, dab there. I can cook and stay clean ! There were a couple issues as I started, including the loss of the pattern. The reverse side is somewhat "unclean" as the edges are concerned, but who sees that anyway? I did steal an idea from my friend Lauren and added a "towel loop" to keep the hand towels I constantly use in the kitchen, as well as a pocket for random utensils. I learned by mistakes with this one !
