April Get Your Craft On

This month's GYCO challenge was aprons. Before I made these aprons would you like to know exactly how many aprons I had in my kitchen? One. One lonely sad Cathy cartoon apron left over from the mid eighties I believe. It probably said something about the over consumption of chocolate.

A new apron was definitely in order here on the cul-de-sac. You know I am all chef-y and all. Hold the spitting soft drink out your nose laughing comments those of you who know me and my long history of kitchen debacles. Harvey Wallbanger and the great spinach ball tragedy shall remain quietly in the past.

Why? Well, the girls and I have new aprons! New 1940's style inspired aprons. Check this out.

I couldn't resist the somewhat ridiculous children playing western theme. It is sort of toile"ish" but just a teeny bit too hokey. I love it. The fact that the three of us have matching aprons...well it just adds to the carticature of one's self.

So, there you go. April's GYCO...all done.

If you made an apron would you leave me a comment so I can see it?

I didn't make an apron; just wanted to say Damn! Those are hot! Love 'em. You 3 have to pose in them, yes? Nice job. And I love the full Victory-style aprons in that cool link you listed. Gorgeous.

Sorry no apron, here! My sister in law made us all aprons for Christmas though... if only I wore one?!!! Was a nice thought though, so its safely stashed in the cupboard for the family dinners, when I can whip it out!!!

Your aprons are COOL! Talent and good looks... how do you do it?!!!

Oh Perrin - They are darling and so retro! I just did our kitchen at the cottage over in retro 1920s so these are right up my alley! Very kitchy, very cute!

I have been scared to start mine. That is adorable! I went to the bookstore to buy Amy Butler's "In Stitches" so I could make one. I read the whole thing and put it back! Those are not "simple" patterns! So now I am on the lookout for a simpler one.

Cathing up here, I had good intentions of making mine and bought everything...then, well, there it still sits. Maybe this weekend I'll catch up on my sewing. Your aprons give me inspiration!!
