Foodie: Blog Hop

Carla, from Creatin’ in the Sticks announced this blog hop in March and I immediately thought of 2 projects I could make!

Here is the challenge:

Create something to do with food. It could be anything from a quilt with a food fabric, to a tea cozy. A mug rug for coffee to an apron. A Corn and Beans Quilt Block to a drying rack for the kitchen. Maybe you are trying to raise money for a charity that supplies food. You decide!  The theme is really your own interpretation, surprise us!

I knew I was going to use this fabric – left over from a recent finish. I’ve always loved the blueberry fabric and was positive it would be perfect for this blog hop!

I ended up with a list of about 10 projects I could potentially make. However, lack of time and lack of fabric prevented me from making more than 1. In the end, I chose to to make an apron. The pattern is “Super Simple Apron” by Valley Girl designs. When I googled their website, it said “This site cannot be reached.”

Here is the apron. I’m not a frilly girly person, so I left off the bottom ruffle. I like this apron because the ties cross in the back and it fits a multitude of sizes!

  1. Cute apron. I have several, my mom made them for me. I never wore one until the past perhaps 10 years I throw one on when I am cooking. I wear an apron at work daily, and I find I wipe my hands on it often.

    • Hi Carla,
      Well, there is no time like the present to make an apron for YOU!!! With all the future blog hops coming up, I’m sure you can find one that will work for an apron! 🙂


  2. What a cute apron. I have never been much of an apron girl. I spill and use Dawn dish soap to get out the grease stains, but I’m thinking it’s time I change my old ways. Thanks for the inspiration.

    • Hi Joan,
      I’m not much of an apron gal, either … but there are times I don’t want to deal with grease on my clothes – and I will use an apron that usually doesn’t get any grease on it! Go figure! 🙂


  3. That’s a cute apron, Gail. I think?? I made an apron in Home Ec class in 10th grade, but haven’t made one since. They are very handy. My Mama just about always had on her apron while cooking! Good memories!

  4. Hi Gail! I’ve been meaning to make a few aprons for two of my littles who help their momma in the kitchen often. I was leaning toward just the waist version but now that I’ve seen yours, I think the fuller version would be much better. They are enthusiastic cookers and bakers. HAHA! Nice job. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. Aprons are very handy to have and use. I hadn’t seen that exact apron style before. Glad you had enough of your fabric to make the apron. It’s a sweet vintage-looking apron in those fabrics.

    • Nice thought, Vicki. But I definitely don’t make pies … unless I buy a frozen pie crust! My mom made great pies, but that skill was not passed on to me! 🙂
