Anthro Apron

So do any of you love anthropologie.com? I'm pretty much inlove with it. I drool over their aprons, kitchen gadgets, bowls, shower curtains, clothes, home decor, pretty much ALL of it. They are OUTRAGEOUSLY priced though. I have been eying this apron for quite some time....
....and finally gained the confidence to just create it myself!
I was surprised at how AWESOME it turned out! Yeah, it's much more simple and totally different style as far as fabric goes...but I think this is MUCH MORE me, and I really just love it.

See? Look how happy I am in it!

I might have to make some more. Here's the awesome part about it- the lime green top part I used from a button-up shirt Clay didn't like, and all the cotton fabric was leftover fabric from old projects! Holy smokes- I LOVE WHEN I DO THAT!

And if you're wondering if I completely made up the pattern, I did! So I'm kinda thinking the next time I make one I'll probably just make pattern pieces or something so that it's easier, and maybe I can share with you!

PS. Do you guys love my blog layout/buttons/everything? Totally the doing of my sweet genius of a husband! I had very specific things I wanted and was pretty much VERY demanding...he took my lame drawing and put it all together! I love it.
