Vintage-Inspired Apron – #22

This is the last apron I’m planning on making for the shower, that is unless Emily decides to invite more friends.  I have been hoarding this vintage fabric for a long time, and always thought it would be perfect for an apron.  It’s a never-washed Everglaze chintz with the most adorable tulip border; it just doesn’t get any better than this.

There is enough tulip fabric to make another apron, so I didn’t want to use it for the sash.  To make the binding and sash,  I managed to find a small piece of the green diagonal plaid left over from a quilt binding.  Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough to face the sash, so I had to use a scrap of a reproduction floral.  I never throw away scraps — ever.

Now that the aprons are done, I’ll be starting a new project for the shower (a craft activity for the guests).  Hopefully I’ll have something to photograph by the end of the week.
