Let's Mix Things Up Apron

Check out this sweet apron - with a little edge.

This pink kitchen print's motifs are rendered in classic tattoo style, keeping this apron from becoming overly sweet. The perfect blend of charming and cool. Plus, these cooking puns are pretty irresistible, aren't they? 

(Let's Mix Things Up/Go To Great Measures/This Is How I Roll. Are you amused yet? I am.)

This apron was made using McCall's 5720, which includes both adult and child sizing and lots of options for your perfect apron. It's about more than just keeping your clothes clean, you can make an apron an accessory, too!
