"Feeding Families" one apron at a time...And a portion of my sales goes to Saddleback Church Food Pantry - helping feed local families in need.

How "Sew Sassy" got started...

I was in search of a fun, retro apron. Difficult to say the least...

And when I found that apron I was shocked to learn it was out of my price range. So what's a girl to do?! SEW (of course)!

I love to craft and have been for a big part of my life. I've knitted scarves and blankets for loved ones. I've painted and created ornaments during the holidays. So why not sew (which I haven't done for at least 20 years). But like I told a friend "It's just like riding a bicycle", kinda. :)

After I created my first apron, I decided I would make some as gifts. And as that gift list grew, and friends saw the aprons that I created, they started inquiring if I would sell them?

I found myself contemplating "Why not"?

"Sew Sassy" is the outcome of my efforts in sharing unique retro aprons with those who enjoy color, creativity, and one-of-a-kind aprons that are sure to make you smile.

If you have an idea, favorite color(s), hobby or passion and would be interested in a retro apron created JUST FOR YOU; then send me an e-mail and I'll do my best to put something together that will sure to please you or that hostess with the mostess.

"Sassy Canopy" Baby Carrier Cover

I found a super "Sassy" Canopy Cover to be used on a Baby Carrier/Car seat.

I was told by a new parent that this is a great style because you can easily grab hold of the carrier handle without worry; versus a regular blanket draped over and the potential of your hand slipping because of interference with the blanket on the handle.

With that being said, I've posted a few pics of one I made for a co-worker.  The photo's shown have baby flannel on one side and the minky dimple dot fabric on the other.  Cost for this combination is $39 plus s/h.

I can also make this sweet & sassy canopy using all baby flannel combo for a cost of $29 plus s/h.

The straps velcro easily to the carrier handle.  And the Canopy fits most carriers/car seats.  Finished measurement is 35" x 42".  If need be, the size can be adjusted.

Now all I need is your favorite color combo; nursery room color combo; or just for fun color combo and I'll do the rest.

This would make a wonderful gift for your favorite new parents and their special bundle of joy.

Busyness & Sew Sassy Apron Creations

It's been awhile since I last posted here. 

I suppose with the busyness of my life, I find it faster to post straight to my Sew Sassy Facebook Page.  However, realizing that certainly isn't a very good excuse not to blog/post periodically here.

Sew...I wanted to share some pics of a very "special" Sew Sassy Apron Creation collaboration (mouthful) I completed recently for a lovely lady in Louisiana.  She's a teacher and wanted some "Utility" aprons to wear in her classroom.  She also has a passion for aprons (like many), and requested a few full aprons. 

(Did you know that if you order five (5) "custom" or "already made" aprons you get the 6th one free? You can learn more by clicking here.)

Now... on with the share!

Merchant Aprons - a fun, new addition

So I've been off the radar lately with aprons.  Seems like "Life" has stepped "in front" of my desire to create.

But luckily I've had a little jolt of creative juice and whipped together this "one of a kind" Merchant Apron for my friend, Gina at Lizzy B's.  She's a real "class act" so I needed to find a fabric I thought would fit right in with her style.

This little apron is the end result (what do you think?).

So grateful for reasons to create.  I've missed this part of my life. 

Guess I should follow my own advice...
