I LOVE aprons, as I've expressed in other posts. Since I love aprons, I am convinced that a woman can never have too many aprons...and if anyone saw my apron stash they might think I've gone just a bit overboard! One of the reasons I love to have a stash of aprons is - company! If anyone shows up and I'm cookin' then they can pick an apron and join in the joy of cooking with me.
Since I stand in this conviction, anytime I come across cute material I instantly thing - APRON!!!! This is what I thought when I saw this material. I really like this cheerful material and really am happy with the way this apron turned out. Think I might enter this one in the fair also.
Someday...someday when the Lord sees fit to bless us with a bigger kitchen this will be my kitchen colors...yellow and blue with splashes of rusted stuff here and there...and lots of chicken items (of course). Not sure I could ever bring myself to actually cook anything in this apron so wouldn't it look cute just hung on a hook in the kitchen? I could use it to serve in....teee-heee!
Here is what I did: I made a pattern from an old apron I had (basically a square top and rectangle bottom), cut the pocket and belt loop from one of my scrap jeans. I doubled the top to give it a heavier hold. I added three layers of ruffles to give the apron a real feminine flair. My favorite part of this apron is the tie. I made the tie really long...like dragging on the floor long! Why did I do this? Because, I think a big bow and long ties make the apron! This way I can bow it to the side, middle or wrap twice around and bow in the back...super cute right? I also made a matching towel to hang in the loop...got the idea from looking at Jessie Steel aprons (wow these are amazing...but ummmm very spendy)
Do you have aprons? What is your favorite pattern?
Thanks for stopping by...have a blessed day!
