An apron for Kayla ~

vintage{y} apronMichelle asked me to make an apron for her daughter (who this past summer celebrated her 1st year of marriage).  I tried to make a couple for her but it just didn’t hit her fancy spot.

  1. Another beauty! They will both be pleased. The tablecloth idea is precious, and the elements you used to accent it couldn’t be better.

  3. Elaine, I wanted to let you know that I have received my Mary Jane Farmgirl necklace. I just love it! It is beautifully made. On to the apron… what a cute apron! I, too, am an apron maker. I will have to try my hand at making an apron out of a tablecloth. Thank you again.

  4. Just wanted to let you know that I am just tickled to death with my MJF necklace! It was just prettier than I had imagined! Your aprons are just too cute. I have so many old table cloths and linens that I just haven’t been able to dicide what to do with the one’s with holes……You have stirred my imagination! Thanks for the beautiful handiwork on the necklace and your speedy delivery. Much success to you! Farm Girl #61
