Aprons with Pockets: Vendor Aprons, Bistro Aprons, Gardening Aprons and More

If you're working in the kitchen, the garden, the art studio — anywhere you want to have a few tools handy all the time — an apron with pockets can be a useful tool. And aprons come in a huge range of styles, so there's something for everyone. Here are a few that caught my eye recently.

Let's start with the canvas, unisex, solid-color vendor aprons from Mzdesigns, available in 11 colors. They're intended for people working at craft fairs, but they could certainly have plenty of other uses. The zippered pocket would make the contents more secure than with some other designs.

If you'd prefer a half apron in a pattern, you could look at the large selection of aprons from AnnaTere Designs. These aprons have three pockets which are each 8 inches deep; zipper pockets, or velcro for existing pockets, can be added for an additional fee.

A Kitschy Kitchen does a new take on bistro aprons; the three pockets here are each 9 inches deep. Some of the aprons are specifically designed to be unisex.

Bradley's Tannery makes this lovely-looking suede tool roll apron, which can also be found at The Worm That Turned. The same apron also comes in blue and chocolate brown, and Bradley's has a number of other gardening aprons, too.

These are very cool! There are times I definitely will want to be carrying a few tools on the boat, but many of my clothes have no or inadequate pockets. Thanks for these nifty ideas.

Louise, something like a nurse pack could work, too - if you're just looking for practical, not attractive. I found out about these from some of my fellow organizers, Helen Preston and Hazel Thornton.
