Vintage Apron

Pin It
I found this vintage apron at a yard sale and it spoke to me.

It said it would like to come home with me.

The young lady who was having the sale said it had belonged to her grandmother.

Now, who could leave something like that at a yard sale?

I could picture sunny days, baskets of laundry
and of course, wooden clothes pins.
I also love the embroidery on the front.

After I had it here for a few days,
it spoke to me again.

This time it was all about using the pattern for a new
apron for my money at our shows.

So, here is what happened

I rummaged around in my fabric stash and found this
bright apple print and solid green for the bias.
I cut the apron a little less deep and also sewed
a line down the front to divide it into two pockets.
The ties had to be lengthen to accommodate my "not-so-thin" waist.

I can't wait to use it.

Do you think it is a saleable item if I made more?
It took me 1/2 hour from cutting it out to finishing it.
And, what should I charge if I did sell some?

I would love your opinion


  1. What a darling find! I love that old apron. If I had seen something like that I would buy it for the intended purpose. I am forever stuffing cloths pins in my pockets and not having enough! I would buy it. But I'm not sure what you could sell them for, I'm too cheap. :)

  2. Helen I love the vintage apron and how cleavor of you to use it as a pattern! Yours turned out so cute. Not sure what to recommend on pricing - best wishes though.

    Warm hugs,
