Would You Help Me With My Fabric Dilemma?

Do you remember I showed you this fabric that I bought last month? Well, I had originally thought abut using it to make a quilt throw. I also toyed with the idea of using the middle fabric to make a skirt. Well, none of those projects have been done thus far. But I do have a new idea for it...and that's where you, my dear readers, come in.

I was looking through my fabric closet and stumbled upon some patterns that I almost forgot I had. So you can imagine what went through my mind....more ideas for the fabric! You guessed it. So this is where I am calling upon you for help. These are the patterns that I pulled out to possibly choose from. But...I can't make my mind up on which item to make. I'd really appreciate your opinions and suggestions.

I really like the full apron in the first pattern, any of the ones in the second picture and in the third photo...I like the full apron being modeled. I also like the pajama/lounge type pants. So you see now why I am having such a fabric dilemma? *grin*

To add to that, I also have this fabric that I bought on clearance after Christmas that I need to use....

Boy that's a tough call! I love the aprons - any apron! Maybe you could choose two coordinating fabrics and make two aprons - using the contrasting fabric for the straps, pockets, etc. on both! Good way to try and use up those scraps! And I'm always a fan of cloth shopping bags, or a clothes pin bag! They've got those patterns free on the world wide web!

Doesn't kitty need a cozy bed?

I think aprons for sets... I'd do something with the top group for a more simple apron. For the bottom group of fabric, I'd do the top left apron pattern. Can't wait to see what you do!
Hugs and Blessings,

I love the first two--but they are very similar. I would make them both! :)

Depending upon the yardage of the fabric, I'd make one of each apron AND a pair of lounge pants.
Very cute apron patterns,
