Aprons for the Retreat

Ok Ok Ok I know. The posting here is very pathetic but here are the two aprons you can choose from to make for the retreat.

The first one is a scrappy apron.
It is made from 40 five inch squares (a charm pack). You can also use a bunch of those squares we swapped in the guild last year and before that.
Scrappy Apron
This is a very old vintage design and should be so much fun to make.
You will also need to bring about 1/3 yard of fabric for the ties.
Some stabilizer for the waistband if you like that.
And lining fabric such as muslin. I am guessing about a yard. (can you tell I have not made the pattern yet. )

The second apron is a bib apron that ties all the way around depending on size. It is another one size fits all.
Long Apron
For this you will need to bring:

2 yards fabric ( more if you want to line it)
and thread.
I will have the pattern pieces there.

Also we can make a square apron on point.

It takes about a yard for the front and another yard for the back. If you want to bring coordination fabric for a trim and the ties that would be great too.
