I'm a messy person so when I cook, I must wear an apron. This is an apron I made sometime ago using my scrap fabrics. I tend to wipe my hands a lot with apron, so for me, apron not only protects my clothing but also acts as a "kitchen towel' when I'm in the kitchen. This one is made of waffle fabric from Japan and it absorbs water very well (good for wiping hands). I like how cheerful this apron turned out with colorful fabrics.
This is how it looks like when I wear it. The strap is long enough for me to tie them in the back, too.
