Rickrack, Polka Dots & Paisley

       What a busy week it has been and I have loved every minute I've spent in my sewing room!

             So many fun things to SEW...
                                                        SEW little time!!

Oh, how I LOVE APRONS!



An apron without a pocket....Would be like a bird without wings!


Making "Chenille Cottage" garment labels


And now for my inspiration for the rickrack bedazzled, paisley and polka dot apron...
DRUMROLL PLEASE.......

This vintage apron is from the 1920s and is referred to as a "flapper apron".
    Isn't it wonderful?!

I have another sweet little project nearly finished that I will be posting...once I sew a button on it. :)

Thank you, my dear friends, for stopping by and for your many thoughtful comments!

Blessings and fond friendship,
Carolynn  xoxo

Hint about my next post:   One can never have too many _ _ _ _ _ _?????

Oh, the color of that apron simply dazzles me! At first I thought it was a child's dress...there are so many on the Mommy Blogs, but when I read that it was an apron I was "gobstopped!" Red and Aqua happiness! =D

Oh Miss Carolynn...Please tell me you have a pattern. This is gorgeous. I am so in awe of your skills. Every little detail. I adore smoke aprons. Okay, any apron really but this pattern is beautiful. You can never have to many...fat quarters of your favorite fabric?

Smiles..my sweet friend...Renee

Hi Carolyn,
Adore your apron for your class!
Thank you so much for visiting my little blog and for your sweet comments on my Rednesday threads. My daddy grew up in Parkdale, Oregon - I think it's by Hood River? One of his brothers stayed on in Portland - I think that must be where we received the vintage Portland ephemera from.

Happy almost weekend! :)

Hi - I absolutely love aprons too. i am just learning to sew and have bought a couple of patterns for vintage aprons. I think I like them so much because they remind me of my Nan, open fires, toast and pots of tea! Lily. xxx

Oh, that little apron is so sweet, I just love it! Is the vintage apron in your collection, or do you just have a photo of it? I agree about those pockets, an absolute must! I can't wait to see what else you're 'cooking up' for us :)
