Turkey Trot Blog Hop


Welcome to Day Two of the Turkey Trop Blog Hop hosted by the magnificent Joan of Moosestash Quilting.  Thank you, Joan, for all you do to create and manage these fun hops.  For this Sew It - Show It Challenge, Joan suggested we think turkeys, thankfulness or Thanksgiving fabric.  There's a lot going on at my house right now, so I opted for a quick and easy project using turkey fabric.  

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and I need a few good aprons to get me through this holiday.  To say I am a messy cook is an understatement!

The internet is full of apron tutorials, but when I found the "Tie One On Day" 3 Aprons in 5 minutes, I was intrigued.  Well, it took me longer than 5 minutes to make this cute apron, but it was quick.  Cindy at The Fabric Patch does a great job showing how she does it.  You can see her tutorial at

I have had this fabric in my stash for a long time, and thought this was the perfect project to show it off.  The yellow plaid made a great liner.  

The apron measures 25" x 36" with an adjustable strap and a 6"-wide pocket.  It goes together quick as a wink.  This is an adult-size apron, but CIndy at The Fabric Patch also shows how she makes a child's apron out of 2 fat quarters.  These are so quick and easy you can stitch up a bunch in no time.  

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  When do you start preparing your Thanksgiving dinner?  I usually start the weekend before Thanksgiving.  There is always so much to do, and I LOVE IT!  The clean up . . . not so much.

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!  There is so much unrest going on in the world right now, but we always have something for which to be thankful. I know I have many blessings to thank God for.

  2. Oh my goodness those turkeys are so festive. You will be the queen of the kitchen in your new apron on Thanksgiving day! Love it.

  3. What a clever and cute pattern for an apron! Your fabric choices are perfect for hanging out in the kitchen to do your Thanksgiving cooking...I love this! Thanks for sharing, Charlene!

  4. The apron will sure make the clean-up go better, right? Perfect to have a new sweet apron for the holiday. You'll be dressed to the nines!

  5. This is a wonderful apron and I love that turkey fabric! So fun to wear in the kitchen for Thanksgiving.

  6. I love aprons, and yours is just what I would wear for Thanksgiving! Now I want to go make one! Thanks for sharing such a cute project! And Happy Thanksgiving!

  7. Great apron, I really don't have any, and usually change my clothes before dinner as I am sure to be a mess! Thanksgiving is a favorite of mine, and I love doing the cooking!

  8. Great apron! And thanks for sharing the link!

  9. Wonderful apron! I love the turkey fabric, adorable! I have many aprons but nothing for fall or thanksgiving! I must put this on my to do list.

  10. That fabric is perfect! I usually get too hot when I'm rushing around the kitchen that even if I did take the time to put an apron on, it ends up coming off. LOL. (Great way to ruin one's wardrobe, I know!). Still, how fun it would be to at least start off with a themed one!

  11. That apron with the wonderful fabric would make anyone look the Thanksgiving chef. Me personally, I really enjoy going to friends for dinner and bringing home leftovers but this looks like it could be a perfect hostess gift. thanks for the link and Happy Thanksgiving
