I have always loved aprons! I remember my mother wearing them when I was a little girl and the excitement I felt when she tied one on me to help her cook. There was something fun and sweet about wearing that big apron. I felt like a big girl and that made me feel just as experienced as my mother. Later, I believed that everything I made tasted better because I was wearing an apron. It was like magic! That magic continued as I became a mother and tied a big apron on my little children. They also felt big and special as they helped me in the kitchen. I so enjoy sharing my history and memories with my children and their children. Passing memories from generation to generation. I see my daughter putting an apron on her 2-year-old son, Ryan, and how much he loves wearing it! As I worked on the aprons for this book, Ryan would said, "I wanna wear it." This puts a big smile on grandma's face.
My grandmother Evelyn wore an apron all the time. She called it her housecoat. It was so used, that it wore thin, and you could see her blouse underneath. Her housecoat was more of the "cobbler" style, with armholes and snaps or buttons to close the front and two big pockets on either side. I can see it now--such a sweet memory.
My grandmother Sadie wore half aprons most of the time, and sometimes wore a full apron to protect her clothes from cooking. She loved to cook and grew a garden. Her homemade apron became part of her arms and hands as it carried produce from the garden into the house. She was adventurous and made jams, jellies, pickles, etc. Her bread and butter pickles were the best. She even used zucchini and watermelon rinds to make pickles. I'm grateful to have such wonderful memories.
The apron became one of my true joys in life. My children, even as adults, still enjoy cooking and working in the kitchen while they wear their aprons. And they have their favorites, too.
There is something about a vintage apron, how it looks and how it makes you feel. Sewing Vintage Aprons will give you that same experience. Sew an apron for yourself, your family, and friends. Bring back the nostalgia of the past--bring out the inner chef in you as you make your own memories! Get started by making an apron and then wear it while making a peach cobbler (see recipe in back of book) or your family's favorite dessert! Yummm!
