Isn’t this apron the cleverest and cutest idea you have ever seen in your entire life??
I know many of you follow Ree Drummond on Pioneer Woman so I wanted to show you the apron Sandy designed and tailored with her own hands. I’m so impressed. She will probably wear it longer than I can wear my t-shirt–especially with the outrageous amount of cooking and eating going on around here since I started this little blog.
Sandy is my friend and the mother of my daughter-in-law, Amanda. She went to Pioneer Woman’s cookbook-signing last year when Ree came to Dallas. By the time she got to the signing table (something like midnight), they were out of her size but she gladly accepted what they had. Since it didn’t fit, she figured she had nothing to lose. Now I’m trying to figure out how I can get her to make me one but she says her list of sewing projects is already way too long.
- In case you want to try it yourself, Sandy recommends an interlining and a lining because the knit material is so stretchy.
- In case you haven’t heard of Pioneer Woman, I highly recommend her blog. She’s a wonderful cook, a fabulous photographer, and a wildly witty writer. Read the story of her romance with Marlboro Man. It’s as good or better than any bestselling novel.
- In case you’re wondering what Sandy is serving in her oh-so-fancy apron, it’s Swedish Apple Pie. The occasion was Amanda’s birthday and it’s her favorite. One of my favorites too. No pie crust required.
