My yellow apron was a trooper- it lived through four years of screen printing almost everyday. The centre seam recently ripped from the bottom up to the hip and the two flaps drove me nuts so I had to cut the bottom half off. When I wore a dress to work last week it was obvious that the apron wasn't really going to serve it's purpose anymore. So I whipped up a new apron on the weekend using some cotton and a pine cones & polka dots remnant for the pocket. Much better.
