The Great Apron Search

A friend of mine loves aprons--she wears one almost every day and loves to change them out with new and different patterns.  Her birthday is coming up, and because I love to give gifts from the heart, I went searching for just the right apron to make.  Here are a few I stumbled across, complete with tutorials:

Recycled Crafts:  holiday apron
Pin It Jona's Holiday Apron-in-an-Hour at Stop Staring and Start Sewing includes a down-loadable pdf.
Recycled Crafts:  ruffled apron
Pin It I  couldn't find the original designer of this beautiful apron, but here is a link to the instructions at Spotlight.com.au.Rows and rows of ruffles.
Pin It Vintage pillowcase apron by Laura at Decor to Adore includes a video tutorial.

Ruffled Apron with Embellished Pocket
Pin It Mandy over at Sugar Bee Crafts created this apron as a gift for her mom--super cute with ruffle and embellished pocket!
denim apron
Pin It Mommy Knows created this apron based on directions from sew simple magazine.   She claims to sew like a drunk driver, but I absolutely adore it!
I still haven't decided which one I'll ultimately make myself.  What do you think?  Have you created an apron that would make a great gift for an apron lover?  Let me know!

Until next time, 
have a great day, and 
Go Get Crafty, Sister!
