Cute and sassy….aprons??

7 Jul

Banished from kitchens and dining rooms thirty years ago, the hostess apron has been rediscovered by the young and hip. You’ll notice that the apron is back in fashion as you look through trendy stores and catalogs. Whether they are bib aprons, smocks, or craft aprons, ruffled or not, in playful prints or pretty prints, they are handy and awfully cute.

Check for books on making your own up-to-date aprons in our library catalog.  “A” is for apron: 25 fresh & flirty designs by Nathalie Mornu (646.48 M866a) is filled with photos of ingenious designs, with names like the Cherry Bistro, the Provence Smock and Summertime Blues.  They range from the ultra-feminine to the whimsical to the chic. Templates and sewing basics will help you to make these affordable projects. Each project has a list of materials needed and complete instructions.

Don’t know where to start? Come watch us demonstrate how to sew an apron at the River Center Branch Library at 2:30 p.m. on July 19, 21, 26,  or 28.
