This is just what I need! I have a get together in June for all of my women's church group, and I like to give everybody a small present. Since I love to sew, and these aprons are easy, I am going to make some outdoor grilling aprons for each person! I saw another tote bag pattern here using drop cloths, and I think I would like to use that as the fabric and use fabric stamps and dye to put a motif specific to my group! Thanks for the idea!
