Aprons

I love making Aprons!  There’s just something satisfying about wearing one in the kitchen – even though I hardly ever cook.

Church Ladies Apron

I just finished this apron tonight from Mary Mulari’s Church Ladies Apron Pattern.  The cool thing about this one is that it is reversible.  I know that this isn’t the ideal picture, but I didn’t have a model handy.

Sunday Dinner Apron

I read in a book that aprons are acceptable to wear in public as well, especially when you are out running errands.  The pockets come in very handy, and it’s a great way to keep your clothes tidy (since you can get pretty dirty going to the bank and the post office).  I can see how they would be useful while at the grocery store – you would have something to wipe your hands on if you had the misfortune to pick up a leaky meat package.  This one was made from Vanilla House’s Sunday Dinner Apron pattern.  I love the fabric on this one, it features cherries.  Yum!

Halloween Apron

I actually did wear this one to my son’s pre-school Halloween party, thinking I was so retro AND hip, but 2 year olds are a tough crowd; my cutting edge fashion statement just went over their heads. They were more interested in what types of treats I brought for the party (Oreos if any of you were wondering). It was made from Cindy Taylor Oates book “More Retro Aprons”. This is a fun pattern because you use one charm pack and 1/2 yard of fabric.

Finally, here is another one from “More Retro Aprons.”  This one is kind of sexy 😉 since it accents your cleavage.  That’s all for now!

  1. Heather, Really loved, loved, loved the witches of Apex. My favorite is the orange dress with the black cats etc.

    Am concerned about the pumpkin pattern for the three year old’s costume. It seems to me it should be a round pumbkin the the legs wearing tights. The hat should be the stem with green leaves and a brown stem handle. The round pumpkin could be stuffed with paper.

    Just love the aprons. I like the idea of wearing them as part of an outfit.

  2. Yes, I agree that the pumpkin costume you describe is the more traditional version. But the three year old picked out the pattern – when shown the version you described as a potential choice, he said “nah, I want dis one.” 🙂

  3. Well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Since the three year old is my only grandson HE RULES. I know it will be the perfect costume.

  4. Halfway through making an apron. So fun.
