We were blown away by the wonderful submissions that came pouring in for our Prairie Girl Apron Contest. We had almost 200 submissions, and every single one was a testament to the beauty and relevance and practicality (and fun) of the apron. They’re just as important now as they ever were to Laura Ingalls! Thanks to everyone who sent us photos of their aprons and shared their stories about making them. (And a big thanks to Amy Karol for spreading the word on her blog. We love your aprons — Tie One On is always an inspiration!)
