A Cover Up

I’ve been on this apron kick the last few days. They take me back to my childhood. I remember visitng my great grandmother and she always wore an apron for cooking,house cleaning and everyday wear. She passed when I was 10yrs old but I can still picture her in her apron.

I scoured the internet and found this tutourial for making a reversable half apron. I set to work and made these up in just a few hours. I love them. The pink and brown one is such a big change for me. I a tomboy and not particularly into girly things but this apron was fun and I can’t wait to make another one.

The green one was my first one. It’s plain and simple but made up quickly. I talked my 9 yr old into modeling for me but he refused to do the pink one. Too girly perhaps? LOL

I will definately be making more of these. I have plans to try a full apron too ut right now I’m having fun with half aprons.

I also joinned the Apronista forum. I’m still learning my way around but having fun while I do so. I hope to be able to join a few apron swaps this some also. Well thats all for now. I’m off to check out some more aprons. Hope you are staying cool and have a nice day.


  1. I have been on an apron kick too, but mine has been for the last 10 years. I have so many vintage aprons, stashed in suit cases and closets around the house. I have been sewing them too, because I love them and because they are so much fun to sew.
    I really must stop! (or buy a bigger home).

  2. Oh I love the top one!! Do you sell them, cuz you should!! I was just skipping through the blogs and found you! Glad I did! So cute!!

  3. Just darlin!!! They're both so pretty!

  4. Too too cute. I dont sew, but I just might start! I have so many young co workers; i think aprons are the cutest gifts you can give a bride. Love the half aprons. You should sell them as train wreck wrote.
