Aprons, Aprons, and.........more Aprons

There is this gal, Julia, over at The Apron Goddesses who is having a drawing for an apron from The Paper Passion. Boy is it ever cute. I would love to have one myself.

This Apron thing/fetish all began in November, at Thanksgiving, when Julia and I were both, at some point in the day, preparing the bacon for one of the many dishes served. See she usually wears a big sheet in order to protect her clothes and I usually put on an old, ratty sweatshirt when I prepare the bacon. Both of us end up splattered and she says to me that we both need an apron. We decided at that moment that we would be each other's Secret Santa and get each other an apron of choice. At that point I showed her the web site for Jesse Steele and we chose the apron's we wanted.

Shortly after we ordered our aprons, Julia decided to start The Apron Goddesses. She is now getting sponsors to donate an apron for the "giveaway". I have to say I am excited, she is getting some great aprons to give to one lucky woman at a time. Go check her out at The Apron Goddesses, she has some great sponsors to check out too!

She has put a bee in my bonnet, I just bought a book that is all about aprons with some patterns in it as well. I am now going to try my hand at sewing one for myself. We shall see how that works out. With any luck I will do a fairly decent job, so wish me some luck because I will need it as I am a novice on the sewing machine. I will post the finished product when I finish.........might be a while, since taxes are knocking on my back door.

So for all you apron fashionistas go check out the very cool apron that will be given away! I dare ya, you are bound to really enjoy what you see.

I too am addicted to aprons. When I get home from work I automatically put one on. Even if it's just to sit on the couch and chill. It's so much better chillin in an apron then not right?

So cute! I saw the cutest apron pattern at Joann's the other day, with a retro vibe. I totally want one!

Oh I'm glad this post was up when I stopped in because I am obsessed with aprons right now. I've already got a few lined up for give aways too! But I'm totally going to check out that site. Thanks for the info!
