Gathering Apron....Sunny and 53*

Several years ago there was a popular song that implied you should carry a sign if you weren’t too bright. At the time I  thought, it would help ME more too have an apron to carry things around with me, from room to room, and from outside in so I didn’t waste so much time, I jotted down this idea---
"Here's your apron"
With pockets to stuff
and a pad and a  pen
to save your last thought
to share with a friend…..
 Well that was about twenty years ago, recently found it in my snippets & snatches, in one of my notebooks {something I need to carry around in such an apron to jot down notes}, I don’t know about you , but I have my BEST ideas, when I have no paper or pen nearby.
These thoughts combined with a recent request to make an ‘egg apron’ on our FB page led to my daughter designing this “gathering apron”





"Gathering Apron"

Whether you are gathering eggs, veggies, clothes off the line, tools for your next farm, garden or craft project, or are simply gathering your thoughts so as not to forget them later on, this is the apron for you!
Completely reversible, this apron has individual pockets for a dozen eggs on one side, with elastic at the top to hold them securely. On the other a large pocket ( practically the size of the apron itself!) with access from either side with two large openings, to hold veggies, tools, clothes or clothes pins, whatever you need to tote with you!
(don’t forget your pen and paper so you can remember what you need to bring with you!
Apron measures 15 1/2 inches from waist to bottom, 22 inches wide at bottom and has generous 30 inch ties! Watch for more prints coming soon and there's a 'half-dozen' version in the works for the little ones too :)
Stop by our ETSY store to see 'em all !


  1. What a great idea. I'm always wishing I had something to put things in that I gather around the house or a pocket for a note pad.

    1. It really is handy! Especially when going from room to room or upstairs and down!

  2. I can hardly wait to receive this! When I go out to feed the chickens and tend the garden I end up carrying 'everything' I think I need in my hands, pockets, and even in my chair. It just doesn't work LOL (now I will add pen and paper!)

    1. I'm exactly like you Robin!!!
      I've been sayin' for quite some time I needed and apron like this, my daughter made me the first one as she was working out the pattern and I'm loving it!
      Pen and paper are what I need the most! LOL
