Yes, for real!
Some time ago I acquired lots of yards of sturdy red fabric at the thrift store for a few dollars.
The fabric reminded me of a vintage apron pattern I already owned, McCall's vintage butcher apron pattern.
Around that time, we'd recently acquired our chickens and I was learning how mucky and gross chicken chores are.
Also around that time, I had an itching to embroider something.
Behold, the ankle-length apron featuring a singing chicken!
Sometime I'll try to get a better shot of the embroidery, but I'm working with a six-year-old photographer.
It's the funniest thing I've ever sewn. I love it.
And sure enough, it keeps me totally covered and clean when I'm tending the chickens.
On a related note: we got our first eggs this week!
