Many years ago women wore aprons for cooking, and cleaning, now, not so much. I remember my mother wearing them all the time as she worked in the home. Now aprons are more of a decoration, and I have seen some lovely ones on Pinterest.
At one point I was making aprons from recycled jeans, so I decided to participate in a craft show , and thought that my aprons would be a big hit. Well they were a big hit, in a way. The people gave me many compliments and examined them very carefully, but then never even bought one. I could hear them trying to figure out how I made them and tried to guess what part of the jeans I had used. But still, not one person bought a single one. One person came back twice and looked at a certain apron. I could tell she was debating on what to do, well she finally walked away without the apron.
Disappointment turned into anger, but then I realized that I did the very same thing when I attended craft shows. I’d always examine the item very carefully and then I’d say, ” Oh I can make that.” and walk away. Actually, I still do this. Well I guess the old saying is true; “What goes around, comes around.” Lesson learned! But I’m not going to be discouraged and will now continue to make my aprons and see if I can do a little better.
