Just a couple more aprons after this, since I already have the fabric selected. Then I promise to change it up and move on to the little quilt kits.
The fabric for this first apron was advertised as a cutter luncheon cloth. It was homemade using medium weight fabric that I think had faded evenly over time. Still, it is such a pretty print, and has a nice soft look. Although there was one stain and one tiny hole, I was able to cut around them. The floral fabric on the pockets is also vintage, while everything else is new. Although you can’t tell from my photos, I always line my apron pockets with a different, coordinating fabric.
This apron is made from a vintage Waverly chintz sales sample. It had two big grommets in either side and was a large sample at 26″ x 36″. I am very fond of this clover print with its unusual colors. The pale yellow floral is also a vintage fabric, probably from the 1950s. The pocket on this apron is very generous, to say the least. You could probably fit a small dog in there, just in case you wanted to cook with your chihuahua.
