Aprons: fight the winter blahs

Well, the holidays are over, and we can settle in for the winter. One easy project to keep busy is to whip up some aprons to wear of give later to friends (who wouldn't love to get an apron on Valentine's Day?).

Finding the perfect vintage fabric can be a chore, but we have posted some cuties on etsy this week that would be great as aprons, whether you prefer the kitchy 40's or 50's type or the more mod 60's apron, you can find a cute cotton here with us.

Now that's going to add some color to your winter blahs!

Maybe the next step is to color co-ordinate with a favorite "T" shirt, then you would actually have an outfit, with a pocketed apron to carry you through the day! You will find more inspiration in our favorite apron book: "A is for Aprons".

I got a homemade apron (made from vintage fabric) for Xmas and it made me want to see if I could make some myself. I just stumbled upon your blog and I see I live right near your store. Yay!

These would all make great aprons! I love the choices!

Who would ever have guessed that aprons would make a come-back? Great prints.

These prints are really pretty - I especially like the 4th one.
