Eat Sleep Sew...A Perfect Friday Pretties Day

Happy, Happy
Friday Pretties!

A couple of weeks ago I was asked to make
an apron for a birthday gift.

This was a gift for a young mom of
three beautiful little girls.

After the Birthday Girl

had received the apron

told me that


feels like more


an apron on.
I agree!

I love to sew for people that I know
because as I sew, I pray for that person
and her family.

Prayers are sewn into these seams.

As I have said before,
sewing is a great
stress reliever for me.

The only problem is that
I have a surplus of aprons
in my sewing room.
Ha Ha

But, I can't stop myself

All of the colors and patterns
call my name!!!

It's too much to resist...

Pleats, Ruffles

Long ties...
I love them all.
I hope that all of you have a
Happy & Pretty

Don't miss all of the Pretties.
The Friday Pretties Link
is on my sidebar.
Link up- It's Fun!!!

Paula said...

Oh my goodness, Joyce- they are all so adorable! I would have a terrible time picking a favorite. I think you may have an apron addiction- but go with it because those are simply too cute!!

Cora said...

These are all beautiful and I really love the first two!
I love how you pray as you sew...sewing those prayers into the seams...that is Awesome! Bless you!

Sewn With Grace said...

I love all your aprons! So many of your aprons would look adorable worn with jeans. It's too bad that we can't start a new trend and wear them outside of our kitchens!

Hi Joyce, love the first apron - it looks like a sundress! And the ruffled one - wow, they make housework fun. Go on creating these pretties!

These are ADORABLE Joyce! I am thinking that after all of this "stress relief sewing" you must be feeling pretty darn good!!! (Love all those fabrics.)

Have a wonderful weekend! :)

Katie DeYoung said...

Hi Joyce! If you have a surplus of aprons, I would LOVE to look at them and buy one from you. I LOVE Shea's and I have been wanting one forever. I don't sew and aprons like this have been on my wishlist to learn how to make for awhile...maybe someday! :)

In the meantime, I'd love to see what you have if they are for sale!

Hi Katie,
Thanks your sweet comment!

I hope that you get this message...Anyway, all of the aprons are for sale, except the first one, which was for Shea. But, I can custom make one just for you! Let me know if you get this message. If I don't hear from you I will find another way to contact you.
Thanks so much, Katie,

Kathleen said...

These are adorable who WOULDN'T have more fun in the kitchen with one of these on? Now, if they are crowding your sewing room...feel free to send one my way, ha ha.
Thanks for sharing your sweet creations. Keep up the great work.

Gloria said...

These are so "pretty" and adorable! I love the ruffles,,,so, so sweet! What a great seamstress you are, dear Joyce!! I think it is wonderful that you pray for each gift recipient of these beautiful aprons. You have a gentle and kind heart Joyce, may God bless your life for that!
Have a happy weekend...:)

I especially love the first two full length aprons! They're beautiful. I'm curious where the first image is from? Looks like a dishcloth? I love the picture.
