Apron delight!

The vintage cotton piece that I used for the main body of the apron was beautiful, pristine and nice to work with.

For the tie, I cut a strip from a beautiful, vintage table cloth that seems to pull all of the elements together nicely.

I’m tempted to keep this one!

  3. That is cute, and I can see that you have put in a lot of work. If you do sell it, I hope you get a price that reflects its true value.
