Okay, so I should be doing Thankful Thursday today, and by no means am I unthankful, but I am so entranced by aprons that I just can't talk about anything else. Here are the ones I'm currently dying over (click on the pictures to go to the makers website):
I love the full aprons. I've been making a lot of bread lately and I was astounded, astounded, at how clean I stayed when I remembered to put on an apron. I realize this isn't exactly new potatoes or anything, but I was pretty pleased with myself. I like this particular apron because of how wide the straps are. For us...top heavy gals a wide drop cloth can not be overrated.
Um...precious. While not quite as practical as a full apron, these halfsies are lots of fun to wear and, seriously, loving the pockets. I actually have a half apron on right now (that I got for $2.50 at target!) and I've been stashing stuff in the pockets all day long. Blistex, cell phone, you know, anything you'd normally put in...well... all those other pockets you have. But these pockets are loose and on the front! Totally different.
Of all the aprons I'm showing you today, I want this one the most. I mean, how cute! I love the colors, I love the pattern. Except, therein squats the toad. This is just a pattern. And reader friends, The Unsinkable can do tons of things. I read, I bake, I emote all over the place, but I can. not. sew. Or anything even resembling sewing. So, unless one of you totally rad readers wants to get this pattern and these exact fabrics and suprise me with this very apron on my birthday (ahem...September 4th...cough.) then I'll just settle with loving it from afar. Or wearing another apron I guess.
Again, halfsies aprons are adorable. And again, I love the pocket. Let me not forget to press upon you the total usefulness of these pockets. Stop rolling your eyes, I'm totally serious!! I love these things and I can never get to the bottom of my jeans pockets (maybe my pants are just too tight...hmmm...) and these are just so easy. And again, adorable. Who doesn't feel all feminine and homemakery in one?!
I can't really say much else about this apron that I haven't already said. So I'll say it yet again, this time in acrostic form:
Pockets. Plenty of fabric options. Practical.
Really nice to not get junk on your clothes.
Only the cutest things ever!
Never again will I cook, do dishes, or laundry without one!
Go and get thee an apron! Or tell me where you got your favorite one :)
