Thanksgiving is one of the favorite times of year for Americans and there are so many fun traditions and ways to celebrate all the blessings that we have. It is a time of year to be thankful for the country we live in and all the sacrifices our ancestors have made to make our nation the way it is, as well as to secure the freedoms we enjoy. Cooking is one of the biggest things that happen on Thanksgiving Day and we spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Make the holiday even more festive by wearing a Thanksgiving apron while you are in the kitchen and make your day bright. Here is a look at Thanksgiving aprons.
There are so many resources for Thanksgiving aprons. Whether you choose to buy a pre-made apron or to make one on your own, you will have a great time wearing it and sharing time with family and friends.
Many people want to have a festive apron for Thanksgiving but aren’t very inclined to do crafty things. Perhaps you don’t know how to sew or just don’t have the time or skills it takes to make an apron on your own. If this description seems to fit you there are many ways you can still get access to an apron that will bring cheer to your kitchen during your Thanksgiving Day preparations. Many big box stores carry special Thanksgiving holiday apparel and other place settings for your great dinner, and sometimes they even have aprons that will match your decor. Just imagine, you can personally match your table settings while you serve dinner to your family and other guests. Many craft stores will also carry seasonal aprons for a limited amount of time. If you aren’t sure when they will be there you should be able to call or visit the store and ask when they will be getting their Thanksgiving products in. But be sure to plan ahead. Stores are often set up for holidays long before they happen and you may need to be quick to get what you want.
There are also a host of online stores that sell just aprons and other pre-sewn garments that will have special holiday selections. You can select from whimsical patterns of turkeys running around to cornucopias to just fall patterns and colors. Whatever your taste you should be able to find an apron that is just right for your style. Again keep in mind that time will be a factor because it usually takes several days or longer to have something shipped to you, especially if it is custom made.
Other people who may feel more inclined to make their own aprons have several options too. Most craft stores and some other chain stores sell apron “blanks”? which are just the shape of the apron on a white or off-white fabric that you can design your own way and make it yours. This can also be a fun project to do with the kids on a weekend. You can choose puff paints or acrylic paints and the famous handprint turkeys that every kid does in elementary school or choose any other design that suits your fancy. There are also iron-on patterns that may be available for you to use and just iron onto your apron how and where you want it. You can often find printer paper that allows you to find a picture or design on your computer and then print it onto special paper that will then become an iron-on transfer. This option is completely customizable.
If you like sewing and have a sewing machine you can also find your favorite Thanksgiving fabric and a pattern for an apron and sew it yourself.
No matter what you choose to do for your Thanksgiving Day apron, make sure to use your imagination and to have fun finding what best fits your needs.
