Free Apron Patterns

I love aprons. My first memories are of my mother and grandmother wearing aprons whenever they were in the kitchen or laundry. My grandma used to make calico aprons for her friends and family, machine pieced on her treadle sewing machine, then beautifully hand embroidered with grub roses.

I lived with my grandparents for a little while and I remember when grandma embroidered grub roses on every piece of underwear (undies, singlets, petticoats) that had been made by my mother. I thought it was a bit silly then (aged 7) but I have appreciated that wonderful gesture by grandma for a very long time.

I use aprons, every time I cook, and have a habit of leaving my apron on as I eat, because I tend to have the dropsies when I eat. Iím sure a lot of you can associate with that!!

Anyway, Iíve been surfing again, and have sourced a great many free apron designs for you. Iíve been particular not to feature the same kind of pattern more than once, and I hope you like this lovely collection.
