Free Apron Patterns Simple Sue

Simple Sue is right. This is a colorful, simple, pocketed Apron.

I especially like the polka dotted waist tie.

I'm sure you've noticed that this is reversible so you can go tame on one side and bold the other.

A splash of color is always upbeat, so add the splash to your pocket.

As always these would make a perfect gift.
