Let’s make Aprons! Aprons are handy for keeping your clothes clean while doing a variety of messy tasks. You can make an apron for any season or holiday or to match an outfit or uniform by simply changing the fabric you use. Aprons are inexpensive to make and can be given as gifts. And because an apron often consists of simple shapes and is quick to make, it would make an excellent first project for someone just learning how to sew. The beginner will be able to whip an apron up in almost no time, and be able to have the satisfaction of a completed project.
This apron pattern was inspired by a vintage 1950's apron, it's reversible so one yard of fabric is required for each side. Decorate the apron front or pockets with machine embroidery, or mix and match fabrics so that all sections of the apron feature different prints. There's lots of possibilities for this pattern! Make one for yourself and for gifts too.

ABOUT LUCY BOSTON
Lucy Boston was born in England in 1892, and lived to be 97 years old. She designed and made at least twenty amazing patchworks in her long life, but she is more famous as the author of the Green Knowe children's books, for her ancient manor house and garden near Cambridge in England, and for her long, creative old age.
Lucy Boston published her first books when she was in her sixties, and she continued to write, sew, and garden when she was in her nineties.
My pattern book for The Patchwork of the Crosses was prepared with the gracious assistance of Diana Boston (Lucy Boston's daughter-in-law).
