Sewing an Apron

My daughter Amber wants a sewing machine. She came over yesterday and we spent the day making an apron. We used my paint splattered apron as a template.
Days like this are such a treasure!
Here is my favorite painting apron and Amber's new pink cowgirl print apron!
I love the way the back of these are made! What could be better than a mother/daughter day spent learning to sew a very valuable piece of clothing. Aprons are passed down from generations. A great book to read is "The Apron Book" by EllynAnne Geisel which celebrates the apron. An apron was, and should be, the work horse of every woman's home. Amber has been collecting aprons from garage sales and has her own nice little collection.
