Vintage Inspired Child's Apron ~It's Laundry Time!

       I have been working on the design for a new vintage inspired child's apron for my etsy shop and have had so much fun with this one.  A huge fan of the embroidered bluebird motifs used on linens in the 1930's and 40's, I have always wanted to work a pair of adorable bluebirds into one of my aprons.  I have also wanted to expand beyond cooking themed aprons and pay tribute to the washday aprons of the past.  After all, the original inspiration for my aprons was a 1930's clothespin apron.  What better way to pay tribute to this traditional style than with a washday apron for today's aspiring housekeeper.  And, if it inspires my little princess to help with the laundry-all the better!
Just a little more work on fabric choices and then my happy pie and cupcakes apron will have a new companion in my etsy shop!

Do you have any fun projects you are working on?

  2. I have not been blessed with DIY ability, thank goodness for Etsy and talented people like you. Very cute aprons.

  3. How adorable! I have a whole wall of aprons in my craft room hanging on a line with clothes pins. I've been busy working on Easter projects. Lots of glue, glitter and vintage millinery flowers.

  4. That is so sweet, I have a lot of those vintage style embroidery patterns and I just love them. I just love, love, love the apron!

  5. Perfect apron! It is so cute. You are very talented. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. Blessings, Martha
