I've had this in mind for a while but only yesterday I decided to move forward with this project.
This post from Design Sponge was somehow inspiring for the choice of fabrics and depiste the several tutorials I found online I went for a pattern from Lotta's book - simple and precious. The patchwork front was the solution I found to have enough material for the apron, because I never buy more than half a metre of each print (I don't like to repeat prints, I admit). This way I only had to buy fabric for the back - well, the apron is reversible so there isn't a real front or back.
If you want to try to make one and don't know where to start, here are some links for you:
