"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.

"In Production"

I'm finishing up a "Shades of Blue" CAC (custom apron creation).  Once it's complete I'll be starting on this little cutie.

Who doesn't LOVE a baseball game.  I just loved the colors - so bright and cheery.

This pic is just a teaser.  Can you envision the final Apron?


Let me know what you think.

Until next time...

Ever wonder how Custom Apron Creations evolve?  Wonder what your one-of-a-kind Apron might look like?

Well, here's the "quick & easy".

Fave Color - Purple.  Hobby - Love canning fruit.  And "Voila", the finished apron.

Tie in the front ...

It's just that easy!

With the Holidays just around the corner, wouldn't it be great to have an apron to wear while you host?  Or better yet, buy that "special someone" a one-of-a-kind, "made especially for" Apron gift.   Just a little something to think about.

Back in Business

Hello Sassy Fans,
I'm back in business!  After a spring detoured by surgeries, and a summer filled with healthy choices and plenty of running around; I FINALLY was able to sit down the last few nights and start up some (long overdue) custom "Apron Creations".

This little beauty was requested by my friend, Tina.  Her personal business "Frosting on Top" had the chance to submit a video for "Cupcake Wars".  And when (not "if") she makes it on the show, she'll be wearing this little beauty I lovingly refer to as "Purr-fect Cupcakes".  Because her cupcakes truly are perfect!



I was happy to have been able to incorporate her logo on the apron, to give it that extra special touch.

I'm excited to say I'm finishing up another Apron Creation for one of my friend's whose personal business is "Greeting Cards".  Pictures of her "berry" special apron to follow on my next post.

Until next time, make it a "Sassy" day.
