Need Apron Inspiration

I want to make Valentine Aprons, But I need inspiration!! Have you ever had a apron block???That's a new one for me..I work as a hair dresser in a nice salon and like to wear Aprons for all holidays. If I wear a apron some one wants to buy the apron or have me make one, I usually make two sided / reversible aprons.,Your getting two Aprons for the price of one.
I usually have $20.00 just in fabric and charge $25,00 for the apron so really there is no way to make a couple extra $ on my aprons.Sad to say. But I LOVE aprons and am happy to break even. Wearing a apron and working as a hair dresser I always need a pocket.
and of course a full apron not a a half apron, I need inspiration!! Some thing simple yet fun , for Valentines Day,Does any one have suggestions?? I'd really appreciate it
Thanks Sherrie

Sher, A shabby chic one with roses and pink and jadeite green would be lovely with the frayed squares.

What about a red heart shaped top trimmed with white eyelet lace and gingham check bottom with 3 heart pockets with cute conversation type sayings like Bee Mine, Kiss Me , These would need to be in pastel colors. Beth

Conversation hearts are always a favorite of mine. But the first thing that came to mind were famous couples like Lucy and Desi or well, I'm tired I can only think of Romeo and Juliet. Which of course brings to mind- "Romeo, oh, Romeo..."
Also- I have a 1960's family circle with an apron article...Have to see if I can dig it up and get it to you somehow...geesh- now you've got me going on an apron kick!
