my sweet seamstress mother came up with a super idea to help us raise funds for this adoption. aprons! she sewed some retro aprons for us to try and sell. she modeled them after her grandmother's aprons, and various 1950's and 60's television moms.
I think they would make perfect Christmas presents for friends or family members that know their way around a kitchen...and might like to look cute while they whip up something delicious.
If you would like to buy one we are selling them for $20. just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me which one you'd like. then I'll have you donate through our paypal button over there on the right side of the blog.
So...here are the choices!!
#1. the "I love Lucy" (watch out for these hot names mom came up with!)
a red and white half apron with pockets. cute black rick rack used for trim.
#2. SOLD!!! the "June Cleaver" yes!
