Pretty Prairie, An Apron Collection

Aprons! Today! Look for late summer and new Fall 2009 ones here at the shop around 4 PM CST. (Early birds may snag a few aprons that get posted early, so look sharp!) I really, really hope you enjoy them.

You know how magazines will sometimes publish an issue with two different covers? One for the South and one for the North, or whatever? Well, I'm trying the same thing here. Before I put the fall apron button on the blog, would you help me choose the image you prefer? Thank you!

See you around 4 o'clock at the shop!





(Big modeling props and special thanks to my sister, Mary. Sorry about the hay scratches. And Millie messing up half the shots.)

I actually like the first photo the best, but if you are trying to sell the apron, I would need to see exactly what it looks like, so the second photo is better.
(That's assuming those aprons are the ones that you would sell. If they are just generic aprons, forget what I just said....)

I like the apron in the top pic best. But I like the photo itself better in the second one.

So fun! I have been keeping my eye open for an apron or two... could be fun to gift to myself for Christmas ;)

I casted my vote for the second, it screams prairie! Love them both!

These aprons are gorgeous Brin! Great work:>)

Michelle said...

Brin those are A-DORABLE aprons!! Will be checking back!

I like the second photo. From an ad perspective, the font in the first photo isn't as crisp against the hay as the font in the second photo against the grass. And the aprons are both so pretty! Also, seeing the apron actually "in action" does more justice to how beautifully they wear.

I have had a mother-daughter apron pattern for years now, with good intentions of sewing some for my girlies and I. I think little aprons would sell well... especially if they matched bigger mama or grandma aprons... just an idea. :o) (I'm envisioning sweet embroidered monograms... ruffles... vintage fabrics... alright. Sorry. I'm done.)

You are so inspiring and I am so excited for your etsy shop! Your grandma is in my prayers.

Beautiful Brin. I am saving the apron I bought this spring for a special someone at Christmas!!! Love, Jenn

Sissy said...

I love them both. Really do love the pics and the aprons. Good job.

Jen said...

I've ordered mine! I'm so excited. I've been wanting one of your wonderful aprons for a long time, but now I'm so glad I had to wait. They are all beautiful, but your "Lost Cottage" one is my all time favorite! Yippee!

I'm just wondering if you'll have some aprons that actually look like the aprons in the photos in your shop because they are both very beautiful and very unusual looking. I've not seen "any" aprons like these - but they do have an Amy Butler, Anna Marie Horner feel to them (which of course makes them very HOT !) gorgeous and interesting combinations of pattern and colour and I love all the white. My 2 cents worth. I like both photos - a lot !!

Susan said...

oops I see both of those aprons sold - and maybe that is some Amy Butler fabric I see there. I think this new gathered more a-line style is really beautiful. wishing you great success and mega sales!

Shelley in SC said...

So beautiful. I love the top apron, but it flew right out of your shop!! Good work!

Brin said...

Thanks, y'all! Your responses are exciting to this little apron maker!

Susan- the aprons in the ads were for sale in the shop but sold within 10 minutes of listing. Sorry you missed 'em!

Thanks again, y'all! -B

I love the aprons that will cover my torso as well...that's where I would get most of my splatters while cooking. Can you make more full aprons? I would love to purchase one of those. Great work!
