Sunday Smiles

Untitled

Like my new apron?! I love it, and it makes me smile every time I put it on! My sister made it for me with some beautiful Essex linen from Robert Kaufman (here) after I showed her THIS apron for inspiration from Hand-Eye Supply. I've worn it while working on the lathe, repotting plants, painting and cooking (if you can call making a bean salad "cooking").

I love the simple construction of the apron. It's so easy to put on and there's nothing to adjust. It's basically a rectangle with four grommets at the top with straps that cross, and two pockets of course!

And there's a close-up of the fabric and my sister's lovely grommet work! I absolutely love this apron and want to do everything in it. Donning it makes me feel like an artist with a capital "A!" Thanks Gin!

Do you guys have a favorite apron?

  4. That's a cool apron Kate, and even more special because your sister made it. I'm a big Starbuck's coffee fan, and when I met my husband, he got an apron for me from one of the baristas at the shop he frequented. I use it when I'm in my studio creating!
