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