Moments inside the life of a young Christian woman who is seeking to honor and glorify Christ in ALL she does.
It's bee-yew-tee-ful! I love the fabric and how it turned out with the maroon edging.I HAVE to make myself and Mama another one. 'Duh' on buying the bias tape.Enjoy using your apron! These are THE BEST.
Oh yeah ... and your necktie is so classy! It should be the new look.;)
Kat~Yes, you have to make new aprons. :) And bias tape is so easy! You should try it! :) I love it!Yes, I'll have to start a new fashion. :)
It's lovely! :) Yay!! How do you feel when you wear it?!? Beautiful and elegant, I'm guessing! It's soooooo nice ... ! :)
Your apron turned out so cute!!! Love the colors! :)
Elizabeth~It IS(!!) fun to wear. It's full enough that it swishes when I walk. I love wearing it! I feel old-fashioned and ready to work. :) It's the best!Tiffany~Thank you! I love the colors, too. Actually the pink that I used was an old full-sized bed sheet that I bought at the secondhand store. :) Amazing what you can do with old sheets. :)
A nice apron! I like the design and colour.Cooking/baking is not the same without an apron though wearing them are not as common these days.Your post reminded me of a poem I came across a while back.It's from adaughterathome blog and I posted it below as you might enjoy it.My Mother's Apronby Marie MarshallMy mother wore an apron,A clean one every day.A part of daily living,It served in many ways.When she hung the wash to dry,Her pockets held the pins.The apron was a washclothThat cleaned our dirty chins.When days were hot and humid,'Twas used to mop her brow.When hands were wet from laundry,The apron was a towel.Her pocket hid a needleTo sew the rips we'd get.In mother and her apronOur many needs were met.Sometimes it was a basketFor eggs or baby chicks.A bag for garden bountyAnd apples that she picked.At suppertime the apronProtected Mother's hands,When taking bread from ovenOr lifting lids from pans.It was a fan in eveningTo shoo away the flies.But the apron's greatest use --To wipe tears from childish eyes.
Robert~Thank you! I wear my apron for whatever I can. It's just fun to wear! And yes, they are very, very uncommon. I was watering my roses yesterday, making my sister an apron and helping my little brother make "Elephant Ears" (which are kind of like a cookie) so I put on my apron. When I was helping Ethan it protected my clothes, when I watered I wiped my hands on it to dry them. So I just left it on all day. But our neighbor across the street gave me a strange, long stare when I walked down the sidewalk to change the water on my roses. :)And THANK YOU for the poem. I LOVE it!!! How kind of you to share it with me! Thank you!
Oh Ana,That Apron is simply wonderful! All of my aprons go around the top of the neck and I feel the weight of them as I wear them. As I look at this one is seems SO comfortable and great for your your shoulders and back! Yes, they are very uncommon, but I wouldn't pay to much care to what the neighbors think... esp the ones next door ;) I really and glad that you are finding reasons to wear it more than just in the kitchen! Do you wear it even with pants or capris? If so, is it strange to wear with them? I am looking forward to seeing you in a little over a month. I will try to remember my necktie material so you can show me how to make the ties that are all the rage!!!!
Shelly~Yes, they are so comfortable! I can't stand to wear the ones that go around your neck for very long. Just because they do, like you said, feel heavy after a while.Sweet Shelly. I laughed when I read that part you wrote about "the neighbors next door". :) Fear not, I was not referring to your parents. They are always sweet and kind, just like you. :) No, I was referring to someone else ... actually, I don't think he was my neighbor, I think he was just visiting my neighbors.Oh yes, I wear them with everything! I'm wearing pants right now! They are totally comfortable with whatever you wear! You should make one! They are so easy. Even I can do it. :)Oh, I can't wait to see you!! I'm very excited! :) And I'll try to help you with your necktie, but I'm not the one to refer to, believe me. :)
Wow!! It's neat to see all those pattern pieces work together to make an apron! It looks lovely!!
Mandy~Thank you for the comment. Thanks for dropping by, too. :) Yes, it's so neat to see how it all comes together.
