    The History of 'APRONS' I don't think our kids know what an apron is. The principal use of Grandma's apron was to protect the dress underneath because she only had a few. It was also because it was easier to wash aprons than dresses and aprons used less material. But along with...

    Friday I made a full bib apron and yesterday a half apron. Both aprons were from material given to me. One is a pillowcase I recycled into an apron. The other was straight yardage from a friend who was moving. I'm feeling pretty motivated! I have a few older pillowcases without and with...

    I was just curious to find out who actually here at the village wears an Apron while they cook or bake? I was thinking about going out and buying one so that I don't wreck my clothes in any way shape or form. I consider cooking and baking one of my hobbies other than working out LOL.

    It was either The Blue and The Gray or Gettysburg. Does anyone know how to make the apron that the black girl was wearing. It was an apron that the straps criss-crossed in the back with no ties of anykind. It was just sewn to the back. I was wanting to make this type of apron but as of yet have...

    Just when your making a meal or baking? We have a number of Hutterite colonies surrounding us and the woman and girls in these colonies wear their aprons all day. I wear mine all the time when I'm baking or making a meal, or when I'm washing dishes. Otherwise it comes off.

    While I was visiting mrsengeseth she helped me sew up an apron I had started. :) This is not the best picture as I didn't have a model to put it on (well full size one anyway lol) so I just hung it on the door and tried to spread it out to show. Anyway, I am pleased with it. Missy is a great...
