A to Z Gift Guide

We wanted to do something exciting on our blog for our anniversary during the month of November.  We also wanted to show case some of the fantastic and maybe lesser known products that we have in our store, while all at the same time, help you get ready for the Christmas gift giving season!  I know.  You are SO excited. Yahoo!  Oh my gosh I am so excited, I can barely handle it.  So, let's start this baby off! 

A is for......wait for it........APRONS!  Okay, you all probably could have guessed that one coming.  Nonetheless, we are excited.  I would like to introduce you to just of few of the apron patterns in the store.

*First up we have the Retro Chic Apron from Bliss!
We had a sample of the adorable apron up for a while.  You might have seen it.  It is just the right amount of frilly.

*Next up would be the Friday Night Apron by Vanilla House Designs.  This is one saucy apron.  You might be too hot to handle in this one.
Fantastic news!  We have a kit for the Christmas version of the Friday Night Apron (as shown above).  Go and tell your special someone to come in and get you this kit.  Might I also note that when a real person, not a size zero mannequin, puts this on, it is not top.  Still SUPER cute though.

*You know what A is also for? Amy Butler.  Love love LOVE her. AND we love her Domestic Goddess Aprons pattern. It has 3 different styles in one pattern.  Holy cow.

*We have another Christmas apron kit!  It is a half apron with three tiers.  These are some funky holiday aprons.  It's the French Flea Market Apron from Busy Bee Quilt Designs.
*Last one.  This is actually a book.  Ironically enough it is called A is For Apron by Nathalie Mornu.  There are 25 "fresh and flirty designs".  I like to be fresh....and sometimes flirty.  ;)

*So, because there are SOO many cute things here and this is a celebration....we are going to give away the French Flea Market Apron pattern!!  AHHH! This is so exciting!  So, to enter leave a comment with your name, email address, and favorite part of fall.  We will randomly pick a winner and will send them an email with the coupon for the apron so you can come in and pick it up.  If your out-of-state, no worries, we will ship it to you.

*I am going to leave you with this recipe.  Apple Carmel Cake.  (Okay, it is really called Carmel Apple Cake, but it needed to start with an A and I really wanted you to have this.)  It's not hard, I promise.  Perfect for fall.  You're welcome.


  1. Love to make aprons and yours are always cute! The apple cake looks like a must try as well.
