My New Hobby

My new thing is asking my friends if they have any aprons and then requesting pictures of the aprons. So, here is Michelle's apron, modeled by her dress form, Caroline. It originally belonged to her grandmother and is at least 50 years old.

Thanks for the pictures, Chelle!

Blogger does something to photos to make them less attractive. I've noticed that pictures look clearer and brighter in Windows Gallery (it comes with Vista) than they do on this blog.

Speaking of dressforms, there's an apron giveaway going on at Itching 2 B Stitching. Tracey has a dress form that needs a name and if she chooses your suggestion, she will make you a craft apron. And, she will pick another winner from everyone who posts about the contest on their blog. All the details are at Give The Girl A Name.

At first, I misread that as "give that girl a name" and wanted to suggest Ann Marie.

Hi Patty
I promise, I will make my daughter model my two vintage aprons real soon. I tried to shoot them on hangers and they look terrible!

Thanks for the link to my blog. I have you down for the drawing. Good luck and so glad you are a part of the sewing community!!!

You know, I think I've decided that these smock/cobbler aprons are my favorite style. They aren't as pretty as many of the half aprons, but there is something comforting & sweet about them.
