I'm quite proud of myself on the account of the two new aprons I made last Friday, using the idea and instructions from this book:
which I had featured in one of my previous posts. I simplified her original design a bit and my ties are shorter than hers
partly by necessity as I didn't have enough fabric (and had to use two pieces sewn together for the band) and also because I don't really care for such long ties anyway. The fabric actually comes from Aldi and was prepackaged. 2 meters was enough for 2 aprons which are slightly different, as you can see:
I used the original sizes, but you easily could make it longer if you wished to.
Here is a picture of the 2nd one:
Inspired by my success, I'm now planning another project!
