Here is a cover-up I made for my daughter who loves to cook. I used herb designs from emblibrary on the main part and a small heart design with 'Debby's Kitchen' in script lettering inside the heart. Can't remember where I got the heart design. She liked it so much that I made three more to give to other family members. Helene

I bought the cobbler aprons from a catalog company. They were very inexpensive. The Anthony Richards catalog has them but they all have a print design on them. You could buy one and use it for a pattern. Hope this helps. Helene

What a terrific idea - and an apron doesn't cover as much - I always dirty my shirt with splashes. My solution is not to cook if I can help it, but unfortunately, my hubby likes to eat at least one good meal a day - so it is off to the stove and cooking dinner for the night.

Thanks. Maybe you could teach your husband how to cook. But if he is like mine, he will pretend he has a mental block when it comes to cooking. Helene

This is exactly what my mom has been looking for. She likes to wear them when she cooks, but hasn't been able to find any recently. Can you tell me what the pattern is. . .or where to get it? Great job decorating it!

I was looking for a pattern also, I went to Wal Mart and found one too small, so I bought it and am planing to make my own pattern. If you do find a pattern I would like to know.

Thank you shirlener88. I have a business license to make things and sell them from my home but find that 98% of my projects go to family and friends as gifts. You are right. It makes me feel good to know they appreciate it. Helene

I found that when I wore an apron I still managed to splash things on my shirts so the Cobbler Apron took care of that. I also wear it when I am dressed to go somewhere and have to eat breakfast or lunch before I go. If I forget you can be sure I will drip something on my clothes. Helene

I bought the Cobbler Aprons from a catalog. The were very reasonably priced so it would have probably cost as much for the material, etc.. I have very little time to spend in my sew room so I try to save as much time as possible. Anthony Richard catalog has them but they all have a design on them. You could buy one and use it as a pattern. Helene

If you have a pattern or know where to get one you may want to let the other people who commented on this project where they could get the pattern. I bought the Cobbler aprons from a catalog a while back. Helene
