If you go to http://www.lovetocrochetandknit.blogspot.com/ you will see Tammy's idea about showing your aprons. I don't have any vintage aprons. I only have the ones I have made. I have about 4 I have made myself. I started wearing aprons a couple of years ago when a friend gave me one as a present. I have only made bib aprons. After reading on Tammy's blog, I was going through my fabric and found a neat fruit print that looked vintage. I also found some yellow gingham I wanted to use. I put them together with the lace I made and came up with...




My surprise. I look at the fabric now and think I would like to try a waist apron out of it. I don't have any more yellow gingham, but I do have blue, green, and red.














Here is a close up of the lace on the top.















This is a close up of the lace on the bottom. I haven't got the hang of getting the pictures all the same light.

Sew Long for Now.

The fabric LOOKS vintage - you could just call it your vintage-y apron! The lace is beautiful, and I think red or blue gingham would look great with the fruity fabric for a waist apron. Great job.

Oh duh. How did I miss that you machine embroidered that? It's so pretty. I'm going to need one of those machines one of these days. ;)
