……they say “Everything is fair in Love and War”…..well, I say Everything is fair in Love, War and Art. I designed this Unisex BBQ Apron for this beautiful Store in Toronto. They sell everything to do with Food & cooking. With Chefs and Restaurant owners being the main clientele…..(besides the Prada Moms), She said she had nothing to offer to her male clients. So I made this Splattered milk BBQ Apron and printed a Mushroom Hazelnut Salad on it and printed “And you thought I was only good in Bed” in Bold.
This is my friend Dudley Mack’s handwriting. He is a very talented Furniture Artist/Designer and has done many shows including Interior Design show in Toronto. I needed a very masculine handwriting for writing the recipe on my Apron…I discarded mine as my writing is very feminine (…..that’s but natural). So I requested him to write one for me. This Apron is so popular….in fact it sold for $100 at Ontario Crafts Council Auction. The bidding started at $35 (half of the actual retail). I have already run out of the original Bluish Grey Cotton Slub fabric, I’m printing a new batch in Stone and Ecru soon. This is one of my favourite fun pieces.
My apron at Ontario Crafts Council Auction….Sorry for the bad pic….I forgot my camera. My husband clicked this with his mobile phone.
Another close up….It has grommets and leather ties….Wash care ???? Yeah, I didn’t forget that….
