apple pickin’ apron

while i was digging through my drawer of tea towels a while ago to find one for my tea towel rug, i found this cute apron which i’d totally forgotten about. i don’t even remember where i picked it up, but i was glad to find it. it looks really cute on…

then i noticed it has buttons on the sides, i thought maybe you buttoned it up on the sides to carry your freshly picked veggies in from the garden…

fresh veggies!

then i discovered it’s actually an apron bonnet!

oh wait, i think i have it on inside out…

 here’s an old-timey apron bonnet pattern to make one yourself! what will they think of next?

    Totally adorable as usual. We just got back from Holland and (strange as it is since I don’t know you) I thought of you quite often. I’ve declared Holland to have the best souvenirs in Europe.

    I think I’m having apple induced skirt and apron (and bonnet if I must) cravings. So I’ll just bite hard into an apple and I may get through them.

    Love your blog seriously love it!

    My Grandma sat me down the other day and handed me various items out of a bag.

    Would you believe it she handed me a bonnet/apron! They are so cute!

    Thanks for blogging and for be wonderfully crafty!

    I love the idea of an apron that turns into a bucket…bonnets too!

    I’ve been meaning to make one of those apron/bonnets for ages. Now that I’ve seen yours in action, I really DO have to make one!

    OMG! You are so nuts and I totally adore your stuff and ideas! Wish I could spend more time with crafting. I have to link to your blog soon, show my beloved germans how to decorate their home. Hugs and hooks, Baerbel

    I love the idea of turning the pocket so the apple fabric is inside. one of the things I could never understand is why you’d want an apron bonnet, I figured if you wore it once as an apron you’d get food in your hair when you wore it as a bonnet. Maybe you’ve hit upon the solution!! LOL

    Wrong, but right at once…it’s all three! :) I love your work! I’m still saving money so I can make some purchases!
