A New Apron

A New Apron

The Green Apple Apron

4-130

Here is a lovely new apron, that I just made for my mother. I think it turned out very cute!  She picked out the fabric, a sweet print in apple green, with alternating stripes of tiny green polka dots and green apples.

This apron has a larger white polka dot fabric ruffle along the bottom edge with matching pockets and back ties.

This apron is made from the pattern that I copied from my husbands grandmother.  She wore her apron everyday-her name was Maude Button, and I call these aprons Grandma Buttons Aprons.

This is a very old fashioned style apron, giving full coverage for all of the cooking spills.  The back does not have a neck strap like so many aprons do, so there is no neck fatigue in wearing this apron-it can be worn all day in comfort.  It is so practical and pretty, too.

The edges are all bound in coordinating bias tape, and the inside seams are all machine serge finished – the apron should give many years of good service.  The fabric in all my aprons is good quality cotton, and they are machine wash and dry.

Isaiah 53:4

“Surely he hath borne our griefs,

and carried our sorrows:

yet we did esteem him stricken,

smitten of God, and afflicted.”

  1. Its lovely! Are the pockets part of the pattern too?

    • Yes, the pockets are part of the original pattern-the ruffle is not-Grandma Button would not have liked the frou-frou. The ruffle idea is from Maria. Just for pretty, you know!

  2. LOVE IT !!

  3. Its so cute. She will love it!

    • I am sure she will, too. I bring it when we come out in Jan.
