The Best Book Ever!



One might wonder why on earth I have taken a break from compiling the swap-buddy list that needed to be finished yesterday, but what can I say?! I went shopping and I'm not ashamed. LOOK what I found! Well, actually, I was looking for a gift to toss in the mail for my beautiful, sweet, cute mother, (do you even read this, ma? I'm still your favorite, right?) but I got this book for me instead. (Because I think we all know that I only read books with big, bright pictures.)

Joy of joys, this book ROCKS. And the best part is that there are patterns for EVERY apron in the back of the book. Find it - get it. You need it. There, I said it.

(don't worry Mom - you're going to LOVE the gift I got you...I heard somewhere that tube socks are coming back in style...or tube tops...I can't remember. Either way, you'll look great.)

I got this book a couple weeks back and posted about it. Now about 5 other people have bought the book. We need a cut of the profit, huh? Hee hee

The vision of anyone's mother in tube socks and a tube top has me rolling on the floor laughing!

OK I think I *need* this book. It is afterall, a book, and books are never bad, right?!

my mom bought this book a few weeks ago. It was keeping her up at night because she's not a great seamstress and the patterns and instructions were making her crazy. so, she brought the book over to me. It was keeping me awake at night, too. I couldn't get my mind off the patterns and fabrics. My mind was going crazy with all of the fun new ideas I now had for aprons. I kept trying to rearrange my schedule to make more time for sewing. Then, few days later I got my own copy in the mail. I had preordered it from amazon. Now I have 2 copies. Next time I need to cute friend gift, I will give this apron book! I love it.

I too, bought this book a few weeks ago - in anticipation of the apron I will make for the swap - so many cute choices!! I can't decide!

I just ordered this today and should have it in a few days. I already started my apron for the swap, but this will give me some new ideas for the walls of fabric that I have! Thanks for posting.
Hugs!

I agree! I got this for Mother's Day.......spent half the day browsing....love the ideas!

too funny, I just got this book for Mother's Day and made kaleidescope apron for National Wear Your Apron Day tomorrow!


Love the patterns, only yucky part is to enlarge the patterns 400% I had to go to Kinkos and they charged me $9 a page for that size. So each pattern ended up costing $9 to $18. I am sure there is a better way, I just got blindsided with the cost there

yes it is!

I totally agree!! I picked up this book a couple of weeks ago and love it!!
