The Crunchy Kitchen

This particular apron that I made was for my Foodie sister-in-law over at The Crunchy Kitchen. She cooks mostly vegan and has her own foodie blog with some delicious recipes. Why not make her an apron that represents her, right?

Butterfly Blues

I heard through the grape vine that grandma has been wanting an apron. My daughter helped me this time pick out the pattern for grandma's apron. In her words "grandma is going to just love this beautiful apron with butterflies"! So off I went on cutting, pressing, pinning, and sewing...

Go Fish

We're going out of town to visit my lovely sister-in-law, Audra and the kids. She lives out in the desert...luckily she has a pool! My kids are looking forward to spending the night and show off their swimming skills since they've been taking swimming lessons this summer. With that said, fishes were my inspiration to making her an apron. She is an outstanding mother and her meals and snacks have to be gluten-free and home-made since her kids are highly allergic to a lot of foods.

Mouse In My Pocket

Saturday morning breakfast at our household is a big deal. That's a day that we're all home in morning and get to eat breakfast together. I work Sunday mornings, so usually I'm out the door with coffee, of course! Since I was thinking on making some egg and bacon quesadillas for breakfast, I sewed together the perfect apron a few days ago to go with my morning cooking...a mouse themed apron!

Girly Paisley

A very good friend of mine that I've known since elementary is getting married in a couple of weeks and her bridal shower is this Saturday. I thought of the perfect gift to give her since she "wowed" her guests (that's including myself) at her house-warming party with a German chocolate cake that she baked! It was good...but I scraped the coconut off the cake since I don't like coconut but the cake itself was good. Not sure if she noticed that I did that. So back to the perfect gift, I decided to make her an apron that matched her wedding invitations:

Being that we're in a heat wave in Southern California, I figured why not make an apron that is refreshing...and so I came up with this apron that I call Mint-N-Chip:
