The borders of this apron are made with the prettiest French glazed chintz fabric. The remnant I purchased was just a length of cut border with one wide selvage. It was advertised as vintage, but I have no idea how old it is. I used the selvage as the hem, so on the inside of the apron you can see this printing:
“BELLE HELENE BORDURES” collection PIERRE DEUX ® made in France © imprimé à la main au cadre
The red paisley fabric is not old, but I thought it would look nice with the border fabric (at least after I dyed the white paisleys a light yellow). The waistband and sashes are made with a vintage tiny butterfly print purchased years ago, and the pockets and border are trimmed with bright yellow rick rack.
Progress is being made on the doll quilt kits, but right now my blog feels a bit more like “A is for Apron” than “Q is for Quilter.”
