Kitchen Necessity - Apron

I've been wondering what craft to post as the "first post". I thought an apron was appropriate - gets you into the Happy Homemaker mode. If you're not sure, get a few apron books from the library and get inspired (I loved "A is for Apron"). You can also find a pattern, but you don't need one. I just cut a rectangle of material, put a binding on the top and bottom for interest, added ties (they wrap around and tie in the front for some added interest) and a couple of pockets and a hand-wiping towel, and volua! This is a perfect project for a beginner sewer.
