Mom's Kitchen

Just the words "Mom's Kitchen" brings to mind an image, emotions, a flood of fond memories.  Growing up, I remember Mom's kitchen as being the heart of our home.  Guests gathered there.  Holiday meals were celebrated there.  It was a simple time when families gathered together nightly over supper to discuss the events of the day.  And after the meal we did the dishes together (me standing on a chair to reach the sink...as it was my job to dry.)

I remember the vintage charm of that kitchen with its bright colors...home to a very "modern" chrome and formica table with matching vinyl padded chairs.  I have this picture in my mind of my mother standing tall in her 50's style dress, a half apron over it, with her hair perfectly coiffed, jewelry and lipstick on.  (I, on the other hand, was out playing in the dirt... most likely picking violets or loading my pockets with earthworms.)

With all of that in mind, it is no wonder that I fell in love with this fabric when I saw it.  And of course it had to become an apron.  An apron fondly named "Mom's Kitchen".


This apron will be for sale on my apron website HERE.  It is "one size fits all".

Sweet!
Where do you find your fabrics? You must purchase them online ~ none of our fabric stores carry anything so cute!
Blessings!

Just adorable, however, you are not old enough to remember the 50's! But that aside, I love that fabric too, got a little tiny bit of it in the sewing room as part of the decor!

Oh Bev, this apron is adorable! I went to the website and didn't find it listed. I would love to buy it if it's still available!

Hugs,

Your aprons are very, very pretty. You do such wonderful work and I think I'd almost be afraid to do housework wearing those aprons. They're just so beautiful... You always have the most amazing fabrics. I'm either not going to the right stores or not often enough...
