Vintage aprons

I have been thinking, and pondering, and figuring, and wondering about making a vintage type apron. I use an apron when I cook, but the only full size apron that I have is a red and green plaid which looks very Christmasy. As I am not a garment sewer, I was thinking about the investment of time and fabric. I am very protective of my fabric.

So one day, when my dear daughter and I were out and about on a shopping jaunt, I found this pretty little thing......


Now I know it is not really a vintage apron, but I just fell in love with the bright cheery flowers. The apron has a nice little scalloped edge that could easily pass as an apron from the past. The really wonderful part was that this little apron cost less then 1 1/2 yards of fabric.

Very cute someday in the future it will be vintage. I almost always put an apron on in the kitchen I hate ruining a good top with olive oil spatters

What a cute apron. It is hard to use our quilting fabrics for other things. Enjoy the new apron.

Very pretty, I use aprons every day, but then, I'm rather a messy cook!
