Overview

A is for adorable and amazingly irresistible and incredibly attractive: who would have imagined that the apron, that charming and nostalgic symbol of domesticity, would become today’s must-have home accessory? But it most certainly is, as stitchers and crafters flock to these creative canvases as the perfect vehicle for showcasing fabulous fabric, simple embellishments, and novel ideas. These ingenious projects—from ultra-feminine and vintage chic to whimsical color-play—include waist and bib aprons, pinafores, smocks, cobblers, and even something for the pint-sized cook. All of the projects are photographed in a playful style. And templates, sewing basics, and quick and easy projects for sprucing up store-bought aprons and whipping up aprons from recycled materials are here too!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Suddenly the lowly apron has morphed from a dowdy Fifties housewife's uniform into a hip fashion statement for the DIY generation. Aprons make ideal sewing projects for beginners because fit is not so great an issue and eye-catching print fabrics and embellishments do virtually all the work in making an apron a one-of-a-kind protective garment for crafters, gardeners, artists, and cooks. Mornu's (Cutting-Edge Decoupage) collection of 25 patterns for a variety of unique aprons (e.g., a practical artist's smock with deep pockets and a crisscross back; a frilly "Marie Antoinette" silk taffeta apron) includes clear step-by-step directions amply illustrated with color photos. A good choice for public library sewing collections.
