I just bought some fabric in bright blues and greens to make one for myself.
At any rate, here is the first of many Bo-Peep skirts for my daughter:

My sister-in-law asked me if I could make her an apron for work. She said it needed to have pockets and could be funky, the rest was up to me. I took a look at a pattern in One-Yard Wonders and adapted it to make the apron reversible. Here's what I came up with:
My sister-in-law loves pink and I thought these fabrics fit the bill. I was considering putting some green ric-rac along the tie, but decided against it -- it would have added another five minutes to my sewing time! LOL
I think I have enough fabric to make another and I might just whip one up for myself!
