Apronpalooza! CONTEST #2: Practically Necessary

I tell you, until a couple of weeks ago I simply did not realize how many truly charming aprons there are out there these days. The ones you see in stores tend to be very standard in the way of shape and screen printed or stamped with an image or design. The aprons I’ve come across over the past couple of weeks will truly make you look at wearing an apron as something more than preparing yourself to cook and protecting your clothes.

Kerry at Practically Necessary creates beautifully unique apron designs that are both, as the name implies, practical and necessary! And I think once you have seen all of the aprons on her site and at my blog all throughout this week, you will begin to agree that the way an apron makes you feel, how it reflects your personality and feeling excited to put it on are practically necessary considerations to make when deciding which apron you are going to put on for which purpose.

Kerry “first started to love sewing when she began her first project, a narrative quilt based on The Scarlet Letter.” Kerry makes all of her “aprons with great attention to detail in limited editions of 10 or less.”

Practically Necessary aprons have a truly romantic vintage feel to them. I absolutely LOVE this one. I don’t know who I would feel like when I put one on but I think I would have the distinct urge to cook something that could be served from the back of a chuckwagon. And I SO mean that in the good way! Somethin’ tells me the man in your life would be well fed if this apron happens to inspire you the way it does me…


This one is just perfection. And I love it that each of Kerry’s aprons have the beautiful Practically Necessary tag on the waist.


(UPDATED:) Winner #1 for this contest will have their pick between this dishy little number, aptly named, “Kitty Kitty.” Okay, so I’m not even a cat person but I love this apron. Now, even if for some reason you can’t picture yourself wearing this apron, remember that aprons make wonderful and unique wedding shower gifts. This could be the inspiration for a wonderful kitchen package for any young bride.


or this popular apron, the Caroline.

Winner #2 (Oh, yes… you heard me right!) Kerry is also offering this actual vintage apron inspired by a line from The Lord’s Prayer.
