Wonderful Christmas Gift

My sister-in-law, among her many talents, does a lot of crafts very well, including sewing. For Christmas, I’d asked her for an apron, because I wanted something to protect my work clothes while I made breakfast. I knew she’d come up with something attractive and functional… but I had no idea she, my brother, and KC would all conspire to make this!

Wonder Woman apron

She designed and made the whole thing. My brother drew the logo and came up with the idea to make the pockets look like those famous bracelets. Both the belt and the pockets are shiny metallic, while the rest of the fabric is double-layered for sturdiness and function. The belt continues into long ties around the waist. I’m astounded she found the star-spangled fabric that works so well for the skirt.

It’s truly amazing, and the only problem is… I’m afraid to use it! I don’t want to mess it up, because it’s so cool. Truly a wonderful Christmas gift!

    That apron is absolutely beautiful. You should see if you can Scotch Guard it. Get some Scotch Guard and test in on a small section on back of the apron, if the spray doesn’t discolor the fabric then your good as golden bracelets.

    […] Johanna Draper Carlson gives a nice review to Midnight Sun in her new column, Graphic Novels Worth Owning, mentioning it as one of the best books of 2007. Regardless of whether my own book were on this list or not, though, it’s just nice to see a “best of” list that’s actually at the end of the year. As mentioned in my earlier grousing, I understand the desire to get those lists together ASAP–not just so folks can refer to them for Christmas shopping, but also so comics reviewers can close up shop and get to holiday festivities like the rest of us–but doing these lists super-early can overlook some notable stuff.  Like Chris Ware’s Acme Novelty Library #18 for example; that’s an end of year release that I don’t think I’ve seen on anyone’s list, but probably should have been.  Anyway, also of note on ComicsWorthReading.com is the coolest comics-related Christmas gift I’ve seen so far: a hand-made Wonder Woman apron!

    Very cool gift! So… how many times have you done the spin in it?:)

  7. Johanna Says:

    Isn’t my sister-in-law talented?

    I haven’t spun yet… I did wear it this morning while making breakfast, but I was a bit distracted since KC hasn’t been feeling well. Terrible time of year for it.

    One of my best friends is a crazy fan of Wonder Woman and a great chef. Now, I’m thinking about attempting a copy of this apron for her because it is so awesome. The only problem would be the logo since I am not terribly artistically talented. Either way, this is one of the best Christmas gifts I’ve seen this year.
