The Ballarat Apron Festival

was absolutely and totally brilliant.  I had the most wonderful time.
The venue was so beautiful

the aprons amazing
The styling out standing,
and the organisers and helpers utterly charming.

Apparently it will be on again next year and I think we need a bloggers get together there.
Cutie Pinwheel is a great blog and so is this fabulous tutorial making an apron from an old shirt.  
Just go HERE.
Have a wonderful day


  1. Thanks for the show and tell, Mel. It would have been lovely to join you. Hopefully, I'll make it next year!

  2. I love aprons, and these all look wonderful!! It's a great idea for a festival.

  3. Melody, thank you so much for sharing with us all. That exhibition is one of the ones I was going to go to with my aunt until our trip to Ballarat was cancelled due to my uncle's flu. It was going to be special for us as my mother was a real collector of half aprons. Thank you, thank you, thank you, now I feel as if I had been there after all. hugs, Kaye

  4. So cute and charming, thanks for sharing Mel.

  5. What a lovely display. Oh it took me for a journey down memory lane. My Nan always had such pretty aprons...and she wore them all. Thanks Mel xx

  6. wow Mel,thankyou for sharing,a bloggers meet sounds awesome,see you soon my friend.xx

  7. Wow, such a variety and all the 'retro' equipment too

  8. Fabulous displays and great photos.

  9. Hello Melody.

    I love this idea, it must have been so interesting to look at the different styles of aprons. The lady dressed in the blue outfit reminded me of the nurse in The Midwives.
    Thanks so much for sharing your day out with us.

    Happy days.

  10. What an amazing collection and great fun.

  11. Love all those Pinnies as my gran used to call them.
    I'm feeling a retro apron make coming on.....

  12. Mel - how gorgeous. I wish I'd known it was on. Looks fabulous

  13. You are too qouick for me! We were there on sunday too, and I have also taken heaps of phots but not had time to post them on my blog . Aren't you glad I told you about it? Did you see my aprons? They were both sold!

  14. OMG Melody those pics have just taken me to heaven! I totally adore aprons, & have a big collection to prove it! Thank you for sharing such wonderful pics... I love the Secondary Students creations, & the framed one is a stunner... Definitely organise a bloggers meet for the next Festival x

  15. Hi again Mel, just got my cheque today for my aprons, and have been invited to participate in next year's apron festival to be on Mother's Day again. You and your readers should all start thinking about making aprons to submit - I've chosen my three patterns already! BTW my photos are on my aprons blog if you want to have a peek, mostly similar to yours but some a bit different :-)
