I've had this idea for a while and thought it kinda fit with the challenge theme so I figured what the hey.

One side of the apron says "I always cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food." Which is the more classy side, in my mind something a soccer mom would have hanging in her kitchen.

And the other side is a shopping list for bread, milk, eggs, butter, chianti, fava beans and liver. The only item not checked off is the liver. Its a refrence to Scilence of the Lambs, Hannibal Lecter wants to eat her liver with fava beans and a nice chianti, so he's already done his shopping he's just gotta find a liver.

The opposite forces here are the nice soccer mom vs a cannibal. Or there's the opposition of the soccer mom being the one that gets drunk all the time whereas Hannibal is a murderer but actually a rather classy man and would never use wine to get drunk, just to enhance the flavor of his meal.

I made the pattern by tracing an apron I already had. As much as I love making cute retro style aprons, these one peice butcher aprons (not sure if that's what this style is actually called, but that's what I call them) are so easy. I drew up the designs then copied it onto the fabric with carbon paper and painted it with acrylic paint mixed with textile medium. Then sewed the whole thing together, easy peasy.

Hope you like it. C&C always welcome.

This is far too amusing for its own good. What a clever idea, I never would have thought to choose housewife and cannibal as the two opposites! That checklist is brilliant, now all you have to do is be sure that "liver" is never checked off (otherwise I would avoid the dinner table.  Wink ). Wonderful job!

Lol. Thanks. I've had the two seperate ideas for aprons for a while and I saw the opposites theme and thought they'd be good to put together.
