Swapped Aprons

 

Swapped Aprons

apron swapI am happy to share the apron I received in the annual apron swap. My swap partner was Suzie,  the lovely blogger at Home Maker Mom .

Suzie made this cute half apron with love and just for me! She tied up my apron with a pretty scarf too. She made this apron using a tea towel! What a great idea. :-) Thank you again Suzie I appreciate your hard work and will wear my apron proudly.

The “annual” apron swap at Katherines Corner will most likely not return this year. Unfortunately participation was very low and several swap partners didn’t receive their aprons…. Thank you to all who did participate ♥

I am happy to share links to the other swap partner blog posts too. Please click the names below to read their post.

Apron Crazy

In The Kitch With Kaara

aprons KCBMany of you know that I wear an apron every time I cook. I am a messy chef, it’s true, I own it.  :-) I have shared my apron collection in the past. Click HERE if you missed it. I wear every one of them! My favorite is the denim one from Pikes market in Seattle.

Apron-a garment covering part of the front of the body and tied at the waist, for protecting the wearer’s clothing: a kitchen apron. I think an apron can be both cute and practical. No need to wear something that’s just utilitarian, right.

I have worn an apron for many years and I plan to always wear one. If anyone would ever like to swap aprons with me ( just one- on- one ) or if anyone is having an apron swap. I hope you will let me know. I would love to swap with you. ♥

Aprons are not just functional but fun and even flirty. I found a few fun aprons to share with you. Note- images belong to their respective blogs and are linked back to the original source, but they were all found on pinterest.

 

 

 

 lots of ruffles! and bright colors here :-)

    I almost never remember to put on an apron! I do have a couple of my Grandma’s (her name was Clara Rose), made for her by her sister – Myrtle, I think. They are gingham check with cross-stitched borders. That embroidered apron above has given me an idea for a friend’s birthday present this year! Brilliant!

      Shelley,your grandmother’s name is lovely. How wonderful to have aprons made just for her. A wonderful keepsake . Hugs

    How cute! I do have a few aprons but none are as cute as these are!

    1. Katherines Corner

      this is a nice collection. Thank you for stopping by Heather. Hugs

    Loved your apron and just so sorry that you are going to do this again, because some didn’t send theirs out. Such a shame :(

    1. Katherines Corner

      Hello my friend, I know perhaps I will change my mind six months from now.HUGS

    My girlfriend bought me the cutest retro style apron from Anthropologie and I love it. I feel like a 1950′s housewife when I wear it : )

    The one you got is super cute.

    bisous

      I found a couple on Anthropologie that I really like too. What a sweet friend to give you one. bisous!

    Katherine, what a great bunch of aprons. I remember in Grade 7, we had to sew one with a bib and make a matching cap (shows you how old I am) and then embroider our name on the cap. I’d look pretty silly wearing it now. I do have a favorite apron, one I wore this Christmas, for the first time in a long time. It’s one with a bib that my mother decorated with cross stitched roses and a crocheted border.

    1. Katherines Corner

      Sweet Diana, we made them too! Mine was red check. I love that you have a cross stitched apron made by your Mother it is not just an apron but a keepsake. xo

    I always wear an apron. These are simply beautiful. It is difficult to find nice aprons anymore.
    What a nice event. Blessings and Happy New Year. Catherine xo

    1. Katherines Corner

      Catherine my lovely friend. I have no doubt you have a wonderful apron collection.I bought a pattern recently and may sew a few new ones. I have a hard time finding them in the local shops too. There are several places on the internet but they are quite expensive. xox

    Since I started cooking again, I have found a new passion. Aprons! There are so many cute ones. They are as fun as shoes. You can collect a bunch and easily swap them out with your mood. I got 2 new ones for Christmas and my little ones each got an apron with their own kitchen tools in the pockets. Since it is so cold today, I plan to make cookies with the kids. We are all excited to try out our new aprons. You collection is quite impressive.

    1. Katherines Corner

      I am so excited that you are enjoying aprons too. It’s cold here and I am thinking I’ll be making soup. Cookie baking with the kids sounds wonderful too. xo

    The apron you received is so cute!
    I only have one apron, but I do love to wear them!

    1. Katherines Corner

      Hello Melissa! I hope this finds you well. One apron is a great start my friend. xo

  10. Missy

    I love aprons too! I was not able to join in this time because of my move, but I will next year!

    1. Katherines Corner

      Missy, I hope you are settled in and that all is well. Big Hugs

  11. rudybull

    Those are cute and inexpensive I wish they would make a big come back. The one made for you was done with such a personal touch so nice.

    1. Katherines Corner

      I think we should all start wearing them and then maybe supply and demand will kick in, giggle. Hugs!

  12. mrs. hines class

    I love the apron that you got. And your collection. I need to get a few aprons myself… I’m pretty messy in the kitchen too.

    1. Katherines Corner

      Oh my friend we are two peas in a pod, giggle. Let me know if you would ever like to swap. xo

    I’ve recently come to just love aprons!! My Eiffel Tower apron is my current fave. :)

    1. Katherines Corner

      Oh sweet Rosey, our granddaughter would love it. ♥She is crazy about France. We gave her all things French for Christmas. An Eiffel tower sculpture was among some of the things. xo

    Such a nice idea to do an apron exchange. I remember your post from last year now that I am here reading this one.

  15. Xochitl Aguilar

    Great collection of aprons. Thanks for hosting the apron swap. Always a bummer when some don’t follow through. Hope you host another one in the near future. :)
