Aprons

Vintage can be easily replicated! Add bound edges, large pockets - nice full apron!
The blue berry apron above is mine and was easily sewn looking at a vintage.


Love collecting vintage aprons! The sewing techniques and the many styles are easy to replicate today. Many incorporate binding, ruffles, and of course - pockets!

Large pockets, rick rack was a very common embellishment, and see many sewn in contrasting fabrics.


Handy Apron with pockets that serve double duty as pot holders. Contrasting fabrics and the self made bound edge. I like the front panels on this one!


Whether a half apron or full apron - grab one off the hook and start cooking, and cleaning! Have several always handy for me and my granddaughters.
