Recently I got a wild notion to make an apron for my husband's eldest
daughter and also one for my niece (who lives in the UK).  Both are
Plus-sized women and have problems finding clothes and other items.
I found a perfect pattern at "Pailey Pincushion" and have made them from
flat bedsheets (for a full-sized bed)

I love aprons, they're much easier to 'wash & wear' than messing up the
clothes I'm wearing, especially when cooking, clearing the table & washing
dishes.

I wear an apron when i cook or wash dishes , or wash the floor !!!
In former years i made aprons from old skirts , now i was lucky and
somebody gave me some `course material` aprons.   I have a pattern of
a Bag +apron with handcrafts. In shops here you can buy aprons that
have cloth on one side and Plastic on the other side.
Wearing an apron saves clothes !!!!

I, too, wear aprons all the time.  It is automatic.  Go into kitchen,
tie on apron, start work.  It saves on laundry, saves good clothes, and
when I am finished I just take off my apron and I am dressed again - no
need to notice nasty stain, go upstairs, change clothes etc., etc.

The aprons sound nice.  I like to wear one with pockets for when I bake =
and also when I am cleaning.  The pockets hold the small items I pick up =
to take to another room.  So nice of you to make them something useful!

clothes.
Does anyone know,  How did this OP post with an attachment ?

usenet is suppose to be text only (unless it is a binaries
group), typically attachments are truncated. It is supposed to be
bad
usenet-iqutte to try to post with HTML or any web media other
than text.

I am guessing it has to do with the access path of webtv.net or
giganews.

I tried to add an attachment to this reply post as a test to see
if the rules have been relaxed ?? but the server never posted the
message so my whole message was dunped because it had an
attachment.

grumble,

Robb, the presser foot picture was at the end of your post, I saw it.  Yes,
usenet is not supposed to post pictures.  Somehow, hers & yours got through.
I only hope it doesn't continue.

Thanks Emily,

My attachment message test has yet to appear in my news reader
so i have no idea what happened for me.

FWIW i will not continue and i prefer that  attachments not
function for groups like alt.sewing.

Re: Its been years (apology)
didn't know your rules.  Never ran across those before.
Won't happen again.

Don't fret too much. This is usenet, there aren't any rules, but there are
conventions associated with particular groups.

This is a text only group. You've recognised that. No problem.

Merry Christmas!

But attachments frequently contain lots of bytes, which will cause
messages to scroll off servers faster.  

I didn't see any attachment on either message -- I don't think I saw
the original post at all.  I presume that Motzarella filtered them
out.

Love the apron!  I use them most of the time when I cook. There has been a
resurgance of the "domestic goddess" apron of the 50's and I have sewn
several that TSWLTH had as cut outs (buy a panel, cut out the pre-printed
pieces and sew).  What fabric did you use?  And I understand you not using
aprons in Hawaii, Alicia. Who needs extra clothes on in the heat?
