"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.

Refer to Me = Apron for Free

Okay - here's how it works.

If you refer your friends to Sew Sassy Retro Aprons; and 5 of those friends purchase an apron from me. You'll receive (1) custom apron of your choice for Free! Yes - FREE!

The kicker - they MUST MENTION YOUR NAME when they purchase their apron from me on Etsy or when ordering a custom apron creation.

Simply copy the information below and you're one step closer to = Good Lookin' while you're Cookin'

Hi there,

I wanted to share the following links with you. My friend has a personal business creating custom aprons. If you purchase an apron from her, not only does a portion go to help feed families in need thru Saddleback Food Pantry; I also have a chance at winning a Free apron. Simply mention my name when you order an apron. Thanks!

Follow me on Facebook: Sew Sassy Retro Aprons
Another way to earn a free apron; buy 5; get 1 free!

And remember, Aprons make a perfect gift for: Thanksgiving, Christmas or Hanukkah, Mother's Day, Birthdays, Hostess gift or simply just because.

So to recap = refer different friends (5 must purchase and mention your name) to win a "Free" apron. Or purchase 5; to get one "Free" ("Free" apron is valued at an average of your cost spent; i.e., Buy 3 utility aprons and 2 full aprons - get an additional utility apron "free" or Buy 3 full aprons and 2 utility aprons - get an additional full apron "free" or Buy 5 aprons - get same value apron "free".  Need further clarification, please ask)

It's just that easy!

I'm truly blessed: to do something I love "sewing"; by giving "10% of my sales" back to those hungry and in need; and by those that refer me and support my little business!

"Thank You" for your support!

Baby Love

I've been having a fun time sewing up aprons; as well as some fun baby quilts.

I've been fortunate enough to teach what basic quilting I know to my cousin. She hasn't sewn in years. And so I handed down my sewing machine to her so she now can create wonderful things for my dear sweet little cousins.

This baby quilt will be duplicated for Baby Roach 2.0.

I also created a standard pillow case for Gabriella's bed.

And a much needed pin cushion for Brandie. It was made with the leftover squares from each fabric used for the girl's quilts.

Keep your eyes peeled. I have some final touches on a "long overdue" custom order. And some fun seasonal aprons, too!

From Fabric, an Apron is Born

When you choose one of the fabric combinations, have confidence! Try to imagine what your custom apron might look like.

Sure, you might "FEEL" like you're taking a leap of faith...but that's okay.

Just remember, I already know what it will look like; and in some cases it comes out better than what I imagined (which is a very good thing). I sure would hate for it to come out worse - LoL!

How this works...
Step 1:

Make a selection from my many fabric combinations (or you can find something on your own).

Step 2:
I make an apron from the fabric you choose. And, "Wah-Lah"!

Above - "A Very Brady Apron"

Hey! What's this?

Yes - it even comes with it's own matching storage/gift bag.

It's as simple as 1-2-3!

Care to try?
