WFWM ~ aprons

wfmwsmall1.jpg
I have discovered a new passion that is so much needed in my everyday life.  Believe it or not, it is the APRON.  I am forever staining my “uniforms” that I wear around the house with either bleach or grease.  I usually wear a warm up type thing, but something that looks half way decent if I have to run into the store or drop kiddos off somewhere.  If I wear a cute apron this avoids my stain problem.  At first, I felt like an old lady, but you can make some really cute ones.  I found this website with 56 Free Apron Patterns.  Also, I have recently got a hold of this book, The Apron Book.  Apron can be so fun and creative!  Now, for the best part, Sassy Apron Swatch is hosting an apron exchange 4x per year.  How fun!!!  Hurry up and sign up.

  1. Oh thanks so much for those links – I too have recently decided I love aprons – being a bigger woman, I really need to make my own so that it fits correctly – I did find a nice Christmas one that I wore when we had company and I had on a cream lace blouse that I really did not want to soil – I got so many compliments on that apron!

  2. I invited a family over for dinner once and they brought their mom (well, the wife’s mom) who was visiting. After dinner, the mom pulled out an apron she had folded in her purse and a pair of rubber gloves and washed the dishes! I will always remember this wonderful gesture. Whenever I see half-aprons (whatever they’re called that don’t go all the way up and cover your chest) I think about that lady.

    I have recently become an apron-wearer. Sure I’d use them if I were frying or baking something with tomato sauce, but most of the time I’d forget. Now I find myself wearing my apron to clean the house. My new favorite is one I got from smockityfrocks.blogspot.com. It’s waterproof and adorable. My baby loves to just stare at its patterns.

    Thanks for the links. I’m going to check them out. I’d love to make a few more aprons.

  3. I have been a faithful apron wearer for years now! I have trained the kids to wear them too. I found a great book at our local library a year ago that was a coffee-table type book on the history of aprons. It had great pictures and some very intersting history. Seriously. 🙂
    I am a messy cook and cleaner and so wearing an apron is a must at my house.

  4. Oh my goodness, 56 apron patterns?? How do you choose which one to make first?

    Thanks for the link!

  5. I use to wear a little apron around the house but have gotten out of the habit. I love the little half aprons and would love to learn how to sew some.

    JOYfully in Him,
