Apron Angels ...

The day before Mothers day there were some bad tornadoes in MO alot of people lost there homes and every thing they had. Miss Lucy over at The Apron Swap Asked if we would help make aprons for the women of her community that were affected by the tornado. I did not have to think twice I new this is something I wanted to be a part of. Yesterday I was making the apron and Madeline came in to the room and asked me what I was doing I told her about the Women in Lucy's town and what had happened. She said I have some time can I help. My heart just melted I said of course. So I let he sew the apron She did most of it her self. The stitching is not perfect but it is well made lots of extra stitching in just the right places and best of all it was made from the love of a seven year old. As I watch Madie lovingly iron the apron I couldn't help but be the proud of my sweet daughter who was so eager to help another.

I was a busy bee this week end I made 3 aprons and have 3 more that are almost done.

I made this one for my good friend Donna . She never got the apron from her partner from when I had my swap in April it got lost in the mail. So here you go girl I hope you like it!!!

I also made myself an apron. I have never made an apron for me yet. (Shocking I know)When I finished it Dale said this is really nice who did you make it for? I said me He smiled and said with all the time you have spent making others aprons it's about time you made one for your self..so here it is.

So what do you think dose it looks like me?

Beautiful aprons! So sweet of your daughter to want to help out. :) And I agree with Hilde - you need to start an Etsy store and begin selling these.

Jennifer, here's that apron site I was telling you about. I'm sure you could replicate these aprons with your own added style.
