Mom Mom Has a New Apron

We all know I love aprons, especially my Mom Mom’s apron, despite looking like a depression-era hausfrau whenever I wear it. Which is many times a week. But I also like other aprons, and I’m fortunate to have a couple of friends who sew.

My friend Ivy sent me this lovely apron recently. I love that it’s pretty but also a busy enough print that I won’t think twice about wiping my saucy, greasy hands on it. That’s the problem with a lot of my aprons — my mom instincts kick in and I don’t want to get them dirty! I have learned that dark or busy prints are very forgiving.

Ivy has some free time this summer and could possibly make you an apron, too. She is an honest woman who does high quality work at a fair price. If you’re interested in commissioning an apron of your very own, you can contact Ivy at
