Ok – Imagine the sound that a 15 year old girl makes at a Justin Bieber concert. Then raise it an octave or two.
That’s pretty much the sound I made (in my head) when this awesomely wonderful publication showed up at my door.
Hi Beautiful Magazine!
Apronology is a semiannual magazine put out by Somerset Studio and it’s entirely dedicated to handmade aprons.
Frilly, retro, stylish, sassy – and all super cute.
Can you guess why it’s my all time favorite magazine?
I am in it!!!
(Unfortunately I am not one of those people who can be all calm and sophisticated when things like this happen.
Sorry – be prepared for gushing and excessive exclamation points!!)
Ready to see?
My pretty Fair Apron. I made this for our County Fair Apron contest 2 years ago and came up with a big fat goose egg there.
Those silly fair judges. :)
The apron is made with a little placket on the bib and an asymmetrical hem – both are edged in crochet trim that I made!
It was such a fun apron to do and I’m so excited that it made the magazine!
I posted this a while ago – click here for the tutorial.
(Please excuse the sad pictures in that tutorial. I was young and inexperienced and had no idea how to take decent blog photos. ;)
But that’s not all!!! (said in my announcer voice)
I have TWO aprons in the magazine!!
They also chose my Let’s Eat Cake apron – another of my favorites!!
Do you remember this one? Probably not – it was ages ago too!
This little half apron was designed around the sweet cake ribbon I found on vacation. I love the retro feel of the gingham along with the little embroidered pocket and the scalloped hem!
So I am a beyond thrilled (obviously)!
The staff at Apronology was so great and I have been a fan of the magazine for a while. To actually be included in this issue is amazing to me!
Update: Some of you have asked where you can pick up a copy of Apronology – I have seen them at Joann’s and Barnes and Noble. I know some craft stores have them (though I don’t think Michael’s does).
I hope that helps! :)
I have to say thank you soooo much for all your support and encouragement!
Honestly you have made such a difference with all your sweet comments and notes – and without you I doubt I would have ever managed to get enough courage to submit anything!
One more . . . Yayyyyyy! :)
Ok. Back to normal now. ish.
