Strawberry Delight Aprons

I just love aprons and wear one every day! They are perfect for keeping your clothes clean, drying tears, carrying veggies from the garden or for just looking pretty and fresh. Wearing one just makes me happy. For me, they are one life's simple pleasures.

Well when I finally got a little time to sew this week, I created these sweet summer aprons that I have decided to call Strawberry Delights! (I'm an Anne of Green Gables fan! Can you tell?)

Side View ~ Cuffed Pocket

Front View

Side View ~ Folded Corner Pocket w/Button

Front View

Both are 100% cotton and have big 7 inch pockets. They measure:
21" waist
19" length
The extra long ties measure 33" each on the blue ties/41" each for the strawberry ties ~ perfect for every figure!

These handmade aprons are available for sale for $14 which includes first class US shipping. International shipping also available at exact shipping cost. So just email me if you need an apron!

If you would like to make your very own apron, I recommend "The Apron Book" by EllynAnne Geisel and "MaryJane's Ideabook" by MaryJane Butters. Both are full of inspiring ideas and photos of vintage aprons.

Have a blessed weekend!

These are gorgeous. I love your attitude about aprons. I can't remember ever seeing either of my grandmothers or my great-grandmother without an apron. They wore the full, bib style and, of course, they made their own.
I am going to try to make a waist-type apron. I bought some cute fabric. We'll see...
Could you email me your address? I have something I would like to send to you.

Oh I love to make aprons too. I just have an addiction to apron patterns, they are so much fun? I wanted to thank you for posting my give-away. I've had several people come from your place to register. Your such a dear freind and sister in Christ. Hugs, Rose
