Aprons

I just love a cute apron and when I saw this pattern I just had to have it. It was relatively easy to make...




Now I have several apron patterns and a book... and looking at more patterns....it's like Pandora's box was opened and now I have a bunch of fabric just for aprons and washed it all in the hopes that I will find sometime to make some more aprons. I have two started for the kids... which hopefully I will get done some time soon....

The black and white one I made for a friend. She helped me with a cooking demo and so I made her an apron to say thank you, since she would not let me reimburse her for the money she spent. She is a great person. Thanks Jeanne!!





The next one I made for myself, but I will probably give it away to someone for something and maybe make another.



In case you are wondering that is a lamp shade... I took one on and it looked horrible...


What do you think about aprons? They are fun and for me--- cooking and sewing combined? I am toying with the idea of making some pot holders... something else for the kitchen... and maybe some dish towels.... another item for the kitchen, both of which I need. We have been married 10 years and it seems like everything is falling apart... new bed, new towels, new pot holders, new dish rags and the list just goes on....

I am starting my Christmas list so that I do not have to stay-up till mid night making things at the last minute (high hopes, reality is I will probably be up till midnight) Have you made your Christmas list of project/gifts to make?

  1. Cute aprons. I, too, have bought fabrics for the purpose of making aprons. I've even bought two patterns. Soon...

    I just began wearing an apron this year and love it! I am actually looking for a beginners pattern and wondered if you might point me in that direction. :0)
    Also, I am having a little give a way.
    Would you like to drop by?
    Sincerely. Trish
