I just saw some cute aprons at Michael's... very thin material, but very cute

Thanks for all the input and discussion, ya'll.
I did have an epiphany. I SEW.
I made myself a half apron, a little long, with the pockets at the top. This way if I wipe my hands on my pants (which I'm prone to do) I'm wiping on the bottom of the apron, not my pocket, and not my pants. I've got pockets in the back for money. And I'm gonna have to add a business card pocket too, GREAT IDEA.
I didn't add a top to it, I've been noticing the past few times I've worn my full apron in the kitchen I've been getting a back ache. So I started thinking maybe I need to make myself a vest.......
and I can see the beginnings of a new 'costume'...... 8-)

I wouldn't mind a couple more of that style to use as bibs... do know how hard it is to find lightwieght bibs for adults???

Hey Shannon,
It's been a while since I've done a Fennell sewing project... you want me to whip up some bibs for you? I'm kinda burnt out on making curtains and it's just depressing to sew clothes for myself. I've got tons of fabric and a mortgage payment sewing machine...just say the word...
Very Happy

I love wearing cute aprons to cook, but I've never needed one face painting. I do tend to get paint and glitter on my jeans but it's never enough to where I think I need an apron. I always have a towel and it usually lives draped over one thigh so I can dab my brush on it to get off excess water. For business cards, I have an ID holder thing I wear around my neck. Also helps me look more official, and it has extra pockets for if I get unexpected tips, and a professional place to tuck my check at the end of the party.

I bought a cute zebra stipe apron with a ruffle bottom at michaels with a coupon. I bought it specifically for somewhere to put my phone/pen/whatever else I need close at hand. It's a full size but I think I'll cut it down because my shirt has my logo on it and the apron kinda covers it Sad

I have a full apron but I fold it in half so it looks like a half apron. I hate having a purse with me so I've got my essentials in my apron - credit cards, drivers license, cash, chap stick, keys and cell phone. No purse to carry! YES!
