Alright folks – this was really hard, but Cynthia and I agreed on five apron designs for you all to vote on.

The poll is open until May 23rd – we’ll announce the winning design and the winning voter that same week!
Joy – Day of the Dead
“My inspiration for this apron is heritage, life, Dia De Los Muertos, tattoos , Mexican pin ups, lucha and lowriders. Why? I grew up in Southern California, and now live in Oregon. Culture shock. I miss bouncing cars with dingle balls and tuck n roll, eating taquitos at Olvera Street and stopping at fruit stands on hot summer days. Putting on an apron, with all these things somehow represented, would make BBQing in the rain much more bearable.”
Lily Munster – Elise
“I chose Lily because her character is so fun, she’s the rock of her family, and who else is such an awesome wife that she would custom make her husband a hot rod hearse for his birthday?! My apron is clearly designed after her dress, but what an iconic outfit! The apron is in light purple with black ribbons. The tie back is black and white, a nod to that flash of white in her hair. The pockets have bats on them like her killer necklace and the bottom of the apron is scalloped like the sleeves of her dress. I put a light ruffle behind the scalloped edge because the apron she wears in the show has ruffles on the bottom I thought it would be super cute on this one. “
Scooter – Crystal
“I’d love one of the waitress style aprons in a scooter theme. (I own both of these fabrics to contribute to the apron!) I’d also love to buy a matching one for my daughter, they’d be so perfect for girl scout cookie sales next year! “
Pyrex – Leigh
“My favorite vintage Pyrex pattern is Butterfly Gold. One cool thing about this pattern is how it was made as a burnt orange (or “gold” I guess) pattern on white, and also as a white pattern on burnt orange. I like the look of a classic style half apron like the one in the collage, and think this style of apron lends itself to this design idea: have the apron body be white, and the top border of the apron have the burnt orange Butterfly Gold Pyrex design. The inner pleats of the apron could peek out as burnt orange, to contrast the white body of the apron. I think the orange inner pleats would really make this design stand out and be super cool. My dream apron, for sure!”
Cupcake Devil – Tom
This is Tom’s design, submitted without comment. Now that’s confidence, folks. 😉
