    Sew an apron for a good cause!

    Craft Hope is collecting handmade aprons for women and girls in Haiti. Details here:

    There is also a list of other items they need, so if you can donate something, I am sure they would be happy to receive it.

    Marge, do you have any recommendations for someone who's handy with a machine or hand-stitching but doesn't know how to cut a pattern?

    I wish I could,I've made aprons before but I'm up to my eyeballs in projects already. Ive been crocheting blankets for cancer patients lately.

    Here are directions for a very simple apron -- no pattern is needed at all. It is very similar to the apron that I made in 7th grade sewing class made for the very first project. (The page Marge linked to said that "half aprons" were OK.)
    Lady 2: there isn't anything about me on goooogle, I mean, I must take it off if there is.....
    Lady 3: The google is a terrible thing, I mean I don't want anything on there! (Overheard by millyskate on a London train.)

    There are lots of free patterns here:

    I made a couple of full aprons because I already had a pattern, but I made a bunch of half aprons from smaller pieces of fabric without using a pattern. I just kind of improvised from stuff I saw online.
