Aprons!...and other things

My latest sewing spree has left me with these, which are on my online shop Sew Thea on Made It.

To make these...

I used these patterns...

Butterick 5506

Butterick 4945

And I made some beach/swimming bags in different sizes using beach towels.

The smaller sized bags are 1/4 of a beach towel, folded in half to make side seams. A casing is sewn around the top for a draw string. I cut the hemed sides from the towel to use as the shoulder strap/handle. Inside the top casing hem, I've sewn in a face washer folded in half with a small zip to make a concealed pocket.
