The Apron Book.

By Alison August 29, 2006 4 Comments 2 Min Read


From the creator of both Apron Memories and The Apron Chronicles comes a new book celebrating all that is scrumptious about the humble apron..

"The Apron Book reminds us of everything we once loved about aprons and then shows us how to make them ourselves. Each page is a delightful montage of full-color photographs of new and vintage aprons, tidbits of advice, recipes and tips for collecting and preserving these textile artifacts. You’ll also find the images of apron lovers past and present and their apron stories, plus four basic apron patterns, detailed and illustrated sewing instructions, and a host of variations for sewers of all skill levels. As a bonus, the Basic Bib Pattern is packaged separately and tucked within the book‘s pages!

There is no other book like The Apron Book, which celebrates the humble yet lovely apron and the spirit of the men and women who wore them, and at the same time provides the inspiration and the tools to reinvent aprons for the here and now.

According to EllynAnne, aprons don’t hold us back, they take us back…the very reason for the apron’s status as today’s hottest collectible.
    “What is the allure of aprons? They tell the stories of our domestic lives. As you wander through these pages…you may get misty eyed as you read these women’s words. Or you may be inspired to sew your own aprons. …Or you just might be inspired to start your own collection. And you may find yourself tied to EllynAnne’s apron strings…in the most positive way imaginable. Enjoy!” ~ Ellen Levine, from The Apron Book‘s Foreword"

Right up our street  don’tcha think Housekeeper’s?

    ahh, the sound of me typing my card number into amazon….can't wait for it to arrive!
    I somehow feel more organized in the kitchen once I have my apron on-especially if it is my Cath Kidston one!

  4. Dear Brocante Apron Lovers,
    The Apron Book is a love story to the humble yet lovely symbol of the keeper of hearth and home. It's also the most beautiful book, and the apron pattern that's included is one I know y'all will enjoy sewing and embellishing with your own precious touches. If you'd lke me to personalize your book, I'd be happy to write out a book plate and mail it to you. if this appeals, please write to me through my website,
    Love, EllynAnne
