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!
