Suuuuper cute. And I love the list of things you could do in your apron...so very, well, you!

ps You can build your own chicken coop...ask Heathyr, she just did it! :)


I love this so much I can't even tell you! I've been wanting a full coverage apron for a while and I think this is the one that is going to get me to finally do it. It looks like it should be pretty easy to customize the size on this. Also, I really like the raw edges on the ties in the original.

The original in the tan muslin looks old fashioned (in a way that I love) and then the two-toned one looks so modern. I just love that the same apron can look so different. Maybe I'll have to make myself a couple of these :)


Thanks so much, you guys!
Annie, I meant to point out the raw edges on the ties in the original one--thanks for bringing it up. That was a practice apron from several months ago, but I liked the raw edges, too, so I left them there. If you make one (or more), I'd love for you to e-mail me photos or a link to your blog so I can write about it here. Let me know if you have any questions along the way!
Thanks, Nis. Yes, feeling a bit sassy in my flouncy apron today. Same old Cooley. xoxo


Out of the ballpark on this one. This is your own design, no? I have a good feeling about this :)


Well, I might just have to make one of these seeing as I do have a hen house in the garden. Maybe I'll add an egg collecting pocket to it! The fruit trees are a tad young still, but hopefully there will be juice trickling down my chin come autumn...


Thanks, Emily!! Yes, my own design.
Elisa, if you make one you have to send me pictures of you wearing it with the chickens. And an egg-collecting pocket is an excellent idea.

You have inspired me! Thank you for your awesome ideas! I will post pictures to show you what I can make thanks to you!


Wouldn't it be nice if we were all a little stuck in the 30's? At least then people would stop looking at me like I'm nuts for boiling water on the stove instead of in the microwave. Love the apron. I think a couple of changes on the backside and it could be a cute zipperless, button holeless (hate those things) sundress too....and hope I didn't double-post.

Brilliant! I want to flounce around in a garden in one too...... =0)


I have a question. I am in fora missionary tripp to RWanda. And I love to make this apron for selling( the whole amount tof selling will go to the project Mission one 27 ( you can find more here: http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Mission-one-27/196930063729360?sk=info) So I hope to get your permission to make one or two to sell for charity...
With love Miranda



Do you think that this design might provide support for the chest? In other words, as a bra kind of? I'm looking for something to wear around the house while working anyway. Thanks.
