The Ellwood City Ledger reported a group of quilters that gathered in Ellwood City, PA to share stories about their aprons. There were monogramed and embroidered aprons, old aprons and new. One apron was made by Mother before her daughter was born, another apron was made by a sister living in Scotland. And one apron told this needlepoint message: “This food is cooked with pride and love and served with my good wishers, and I don’t want praise, but would like help with the dishes.”
The new Criss Cross Pocket Apron pattern from Vanilla House Designs is a sassy little apron with bias edging and button trim.
The pattern also includes a pattern for an oven mitt and cookie Mix-in-a-Bag that all coordinate.
Available through Vanilla House Designs and ask for it at your local quilt shop.
Inspired by the tailored lines of the late 30’s, the Vintage V-Neck Apron from Indygo Junction features a clean silhouette with a a full bow in the back for modern flair. An over-the-head style with full bodice and bucket pocket, this apron is sure to please the sophisticated modern cook in a bold modern print or the vintage enthusiast when sewn in a reproduction print from her favorite era.
One size fits most and flatters sizes 8-14. Instructions given for custom fitting during construction.
Ask for it at your local fabric retailer!
I visited the NW Quilting Expo in Portland, Oregon this weekend and got to visit with Michelle, owner of Busy Bee Quilt Designs in West Linn, OR. She had this very cute hostess apron she created on display. The pattern is called ‘ Amelie’.Tweet
It doesn’t have to be Mother’s Day to love a new apron. Check out this tutorial for a pin-tucked apron:
