I'm not much of an apron person myself - but aprons can certainly serve as organizing tools. This post was inspired by the Serena & Lily art aprons shown above, which made me want to go looking for some other neat aprons. Update on April 24, 2012: Serena and Lily doesn't carry these aprons any more.
Dillyhearts sells play aprons with pockets; the web site is being updated, so this specific apron might not be available. Update on April 24, 2012: This apron is out of stock, and Dillyhearts doesn't seem to sell aprons any more.
Urban Aprons sells a range of nice products: garden aprons, studio aprons, craft aprons, and leather aprons.
Oilcloth Corral sells this oilcloth gardener apron; two other patterns are available. Update on April 24, 2012: Oilcloth Corral seems to have disappeared.
And here's a gardener's apron from TullaBelles. Update on April 24, 2012: TullaBelles doesn't appear to sell aprons any more.
And then there are the shop aprons; this one is the Carhartt duck nail apron.
Kuny's Leather makes a range of carpenter's aprons.
The Japan Woodworker sells this bib apron.
And then there are the leather work aprons. This eight-pocket cobbler and blacksmith's apron comes from Jamin Leather.
And this apron comes from CyclonaDesigns on Etsy.
Shifting gears again, Kristen Lemoine Designs sells a "Mom's Little Helper Apron" - perhaps not the best choice of words, but a nice little apron. Anyone else breaking out in song? The apron is available in 12 patterns. Update on April 24, 2012: I'm no longer finding Kristen's web site.
Utility Canvas sells a nice basic full apron, based on a butcher's apron. It's available in five different colors.
And a final category of aprons is the vendor apron; this one from Yooper Boutique, on Etsy, was one of my favorites. Update on April 24, 2012: This Etsy store has been closed.
