The Return of Saturday's Apron: A repro of a cute homemade vintage apron
This apron is made of vintage and new fabric and is from the design of an apron one of the women of our church brought one Sunday when she would be working in the kitchen. She said her grandmother had made it. She kindly allowed me to bring it home to write down the design. It's made of two fabrics, a cotton print and a cotton organdy underneath. I reproduced it using pieces of a pretty polished cotton chintz (vintage) and new white cotton organdy bought on eBay from seller Exclusive Silks. I used vintage bias edging, too. It turned out so pretty that if I don't come up with something I like better, it's going to be my fair entry apron this year.
