Match it up!
Matching your apron to your kitchen? Sound a bit hokey? Well...think about it. You're apron is no doubt, either hanging around your neck, at your waist, or hanging on a hook somewhere in clear view. Don't you coordinate your dish towels with your decor? And, your curtains? Well...your aprons are no different. Once you don them or hang them in plain sight, they become part and parcel of your color scheme. So why not wear something that compliments all the other things you work so hard to coordinate?
At our little cottage industry that we've named, Aprons Gone Wild, we try and offer a uniquely special selection of fabrics, colors and designs so that your apron becomes an addition to what you've created in your home. We put a lot of thought into our work. Often, while I'm sewing an apron, I develop a mental image of the person it might be going to and the home that it might end up in. Our aprons and ditty bags hang in some of the prettiest and most stylish kitchens. Modern kitchens, country kitchens, primitive kitchens, and old cottage kitchens. We've seen them all and we love them all. That's why we try and create aprons that add something to your home. We aim to put a smile on your face when you tie one of our aprons around your neck and waist. We are convinced that our beautiful selection of batiks, with their deep rich colors and intriguing patterns will kick things up a notch whether you're cleaning, cooking, entertaining, gardening or taking care of those gorgeous little ones. There's nothing dull about an Aprons Gone Wild apron. Check out our etsy online shop at and let us know what you think.
Our photo here today is of our Black Tea Paisley Apron. It's a sophisticated black and tea-dyed look paisley print that's hand sewn in a sturdy, one hundred percent cotton. We think its pretty special.
I'm discovering that the blog world is unending. So many wonderful sites with gorgeous pictures and heartfelt personal stories. It's a window into a world that has introduced a new facet to my life. A "thank you" to those I've already come to know and those I hope to meet in the future. There's never a dull moment on the Internet!


  1. Hi Mom,

    I think you need to start making sun dresses! I know that is probably the last thing on your mind but the fabrics are so beautiful and would be perfect for a nice, summer, throw-on sun dress to where after you've hit the beach and are all tan.
    Just a thought......

  2. Ohhhh...I meant to say "wear" not "where."


I love hearing from you, but due to a large number of spam comments recently, I am now monitoring comments before publishing them. The Internet is a weird place sometimes!
