I spent an hour this morning making myself an apron. I have a few of the store bought variety. My daughter Abigail will not work in the kitchen without putting one one. Being
fashion conscience picky, I wanted something prettier and more feminine. I didn’t follow a pattern, I just knew what I wanted and set forth making it. The print is Alexander Henry’s “Pikes Peak Patchwork”. (I love patchwork!) I made the apron strings extra long to wrap around twice, or, if we are so blessed, to fit around a pregnant belly. (Or, are they extra long to accomodate keeping all of my children tied to my apron strings?!:) I must say it works pretty well. It took me through lunch, baking, three sinkfulls of dishes, and laundry, and my skirt is dry and spotfree! I think I’ll make Abigail a new one too!
