Snappy!

Look what I whipped up last week!

Isn't that brown dotted fabric just divine?! I originally bought it to make a tote bag. And yet... here is an apron. Even better.

It has a few pockets along the bottom for stashing paint brushes, scissors, Snickers bars, and toys which may have been confiscated from children who should not be throwing such things in the house. The tiny orange ribbon trim at the top of the pockets came from Kathy in one the little goodie stashes she shared with me. (Thanks, Kathy!)

I love wearing an apron. It's good for wiping my hands on if they are all messy with glue or brownie batter. It makes me feel crafty and domestic and yet spunky and arty.

I could make many many many more of these. So fun and easy. Maybe I could find some cool red, white and blue fabrics and whip one up before the big neighborhood Fourth of July parade. A trip to the fabric store? Yes, please.

Ooooh! I love the dotty fabric! I LOVE this apron! You are definitely one spunky mom/artist ;-) I've been wanting to make one for myself, but have been too busy making bags. The apron is just rectangles, right?

You make even an apron look so chic! Is this a benjamin picture? If so, it's a good one!

Very spunky! I made one (full torso) to wear when screen printing, but yours is oh so much more stylish. I may have to make another ...

Hiring professional models for your projects now, Deborah? Shouldn't that money be speant on more fabric? Seriously, the apron is perfect. I thought i was going to work on my Dianne Hire curves quilt today, but now I think I need to make an apron! Darn you.

That is really cute. My aprons need top halves--seems like everything lands on the chest these days---sigh---

Sigh..I think my whole body needs an apron! the apron smock as the new fashion statement: June Cleaver, move over!

And yes, I've been thinking it would be good for de-gunking. The good news is that as the kids get older, the gunk level decreases. Until you get a goobery dog..... or hairy cats.....

It's SO cute and SO you! Miss you! Sarah
