Hello Friends! Today I have some aprons to share with you. I love making aprons and encouraging women to enjoy being keepers at home. Wearing an apron not only is fun, but practical to. I would love to hear if any of you like aprons, and why.
Titus Chapter 2
3 The aged women likewise, that [they be] in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;[To be] discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
The one above is made from an old curtain panel that I was given and I thought it was so pretty. I love vintage things!
Below is an apron that I made out of an old pair of cotton pants that are a type of plaid (hard to tell) and some complimenting dark fabric that I had a bit of. I made two, this one and one smaller for a little girl.
Then I found some lovely floral fabric at the free store (at our recycling centre) and then added some lace that was edged with some blue seam binding. I made one with two separate pockets and one with a large pocket sewn up the middle to make two.
This is a close up of the fabric from the above aprons.
Then I heard of a little girl that wanted an apron. So I looked through my fabric and found this lovely pink and white striped material and the floral material and thought they'd be cute together. I added a touch of lace and some pink seam binding to the edges.
I also found this lovely material and dug out some old lace edged ribbon that I have been hoarding for years. I used it for the straps and some edging and then added lace all the way around the apron and pocket.
Most of the material I have is from the free store or from someone who doesn't want it anymore. It's fun to be able to put it to use somehow. I have lots more aprons in the planning and will start sewing when time presents itself.
What do you like in an apron? I love to have long straps and big pockets. :)
Praying you have a beautiful day!
