Just a little rant...

Ok every one that knows me knows that I am apron addicted.. Not only am I apron addicted I am also Addicted to apron swapping.. IT always seams like all my aprons are due at about the same time.. I just made 4 aprons and have 2 more to go before I am done swapping for the year. Plus i have all the aprons I need to finish up for Christmas... Whew that being said Here is one of the aprons I made. Nothing fancy here.. Just a simple classic apron with a simple classic print. I did lace the pocket and used satin ribbon for the ties but its any thing but fancy.. Why am I whining you may ask? Well The apron swap theme was hostess apron with the emphases being a fancy apron made with fancy fabric. So I was so excited to join this was right up my ally. This is where i shine makeing fancy schmancy things.. I had the prefect fabric the perfect pattern all picked out and then I got my partner. Who is a very sweet person but she asked for something homey and not to cutesy because she lives in the country and dose not get out to have fancy parties. I almost cried.. I thought you got to be kidding me.. This has to be a joke the queen of glitter and glam has to make a plane Jane apron.. What a bummer.. So I really was not in the spirit of this whole apron swap and every time I looked at the blog I just drooled seeing all the fancy aprons that were being made I got a little sad when ever I looked at the non fancy apron I had made.Then I thought grow up Jennifer it's not the end of the world. You just made a fun apron that some one will love the way they wanted it not the way I wanted it. Then I remembered Duhh the other part of the apron swap is getting one in return.. When I was on the flirty apron swap blog today I think I saw the one I am getting just because of something she said.. So know I am all excited again.
I also decided that I am going to go ahead and make a fancy schmancy apron OK 2 fancy schmancy aprons one for me and one for a lucky blog reader. So stay tuned for another giveaway soon..

I don't know. I think it is a fancy apron just in a very simple elegant way. Something she could wear on special occasions and everyday if she chose.

You make me want to cook just so I can wear some of the aprons you show. lol.

Girl, you go with your aprons! You are so good! All I can sew is paper!! Do you wear all of your aprons or do you just admire them? They're so pretty i'd be afraid of getting them dirty, lol.

I really love that apron! It's much fancier than my blue denim pampered chef one! I was just thinking about how I wish you would do an apron giveaway and then you said you are planning one! I can't wait!

Supercool Hotmama said...

Yeah for fancy! Who says you can't wear fancy to do the dishes and clean out the fridge? But good for you on making her what she wanted. I'm sure she'll love it!

It is LOVELY, and it IS fancy due to the fabric. I know what you mean though. The reason I did NOT join that swap was b/c I wouldn't wear a true hostess apron. Chin up though, she will ADORE your creation. After the holidays, make yourself a super fancy apron and wear it for yourself and know who...
