If you're moving around a kitchen, an art studio, a garden — or any number of other places — an apron can be a helpful organizing aid, making sure you have essential tools close at hand. And there are a wide range of aprons available to provide that aid!
At the latest conference of the National Association of Professional Organizers, these 4-pocket aprons were being displayed by Abundance Organizing, and they are now available for purchase on the web.
This Ben Davis denim machinist's apron (also available in black) can be bought through Ben Davis, or through other sites such as Hand-Eye Supply, which has better photos. [via Book of Joe]
Heart and Sow made this 9-pocket utility half apron from recycled curtains!
The kitchen aprons from Studiopatró are simple and stunning.
This oilcloth apron comes from Palomas Oilcloth Designs; aprons are available in both adult and child sizes.
And finally, here's a combination toolbelt/apron for gardeners, from Garden Tribe. The company's website says it has “ceased trading” but you can still find this item for sale at Leisure Gardening (one color choice only) and Garden Divas (four color choices), both in the U.K. Update on Aug. 22, 2013: I'm not longer finding this apron for sale at Leasire Gardening or Garden Divas, but Amazon.co.uk still has a few in stock.
