Fly Like an Eagle

Ever notice how the UPS man always takes his slow sweet time when you're waiting for something?


And boy was I waiting for something. Interestingly enough, I ordered this little gem before I had my grand idea but it's quite appropriate for my new venture. I perused a copy in Barnes and Noble then went right home and ordered it from amazon.com. What can I say? Amazon has better pricing.

And here she is: A is for Apron by Nathalie Mornu.

Don't let the cover fool you. It's chockabock full of cute little apron ideas fom the half apron pictured on the cover to smock style aprons that will cover you up like Jim Bob's eighth wife.

If I'm going to be getting dressed every morning and doing stuff like cleaning, baking, and other nice housewifey things, I'll be needing a couple aprons to keep my clothes from looking like something my dog shat on after playing tug of war with the kids. I already have some fabric in mind, a couple recent purchases from Connecting Threads.

I'd show you which ones but they appear to be sold out. I'll just have to sew up one or two and post tomorrow.


  1. Aw, the one on the cover is super cute and I'm sure you're going to look perfectly domestic, proper and lady-like in whichever ones you choose to make;)

    I can never find cute, affordable aprons so if you ever decide to start selling them, I'll be your first customer in line.

  2. Awww, thanks, MG!! One of my New Year's resolution is to open an etsy shop so you might get your wish!

  3. I'll be in line after MG! Wearing aprons is on my to-do list for the year.
