I like our basic pinafore apron (the canning and kitchen apron found here), but I'm always looking at other aprons. Here's the latest list of possibilities...
Very simple Amish apron...not bad for everyday and choring wear
A Buttoned Bib Apron...I think this would look pretty on Emily, not sure about the middle girls
I love this Edwardian Apron...I think it would be so pretty on Emily...wouldn't mind one for myself aside from the fact I just don't have the right sort of 'shape' for it, even if they do say it is extremely forgiving and adaptable to fitting other sizes!
The Church Ladies Apron...not bad, very basic and easy design. Could whip up several and sell.
I've always wanted this apron and just keep talking myself out of getting the pattern, but I think I'll order it this week for ladies and girl sizing, and I do like Candle on The Hill patterns. They haven't changed much since being sold to Kings Daughters.
I've wanted to find this pattern for the Heirloom Handkerchief Bonnet for a while. I'd like to make some up for the hope chests here. I once had the pattern found, free online, but it's since disappeared. Should have printed it and the verse off then I guess. I think these would sell nicely as well.
I don't know what I'm planning. I have more than enough sewing to keep up with on my own needs list, but I did fairly well offering clothing for sale before. Maybe again. I have had a few friends ask about sewing this or that, making coverings, etc. I don't know that I'll put out the word just yet, but the idea is rolling around in my head. LOL...maybe I'll start with coverings and aprons and see what happens. Who knows?

Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
