I've been thinking about making an apron.  Did you know that the Monday after Mother's Day, is National Apron Day?

I love the idea of having a fresh new apron to wear on the upcoming holiday.  So, I did some looking on line today, and I was reminded just how much I love a Vintage Apron.

I love the packaging of the patterns.  The stylish hair.  The tiny waists!  And this is a size 14-16!

 Look at the great options in these 3 patterns.  I love the pockets in the center!  You could put a lot of Lego's in those babies!  Again the tiny waists!

 This is so adorable.  And, it was a free pattern.  I wish little blue birds would come tie my apron strings, and turn down my sheets at night.

 I love these flirty see-thru aprons.  Just what would you put in those pockets?  These must have been worn at fancy cocktail parties in the 50's.
 This looks more like it.  Cherries, a nice sized pocket,  a flirty ruffle at the bottom, and a normal waist line!

FYI-I mailed 72 'Just One Star' blocks to Moda last week.  Thanks for all of your participation!  J

I have a lot of apron fabrics and some "Older" aprons I've picked up through the years. My favorite story is a wall hanging I did with some old dish towels of my grandma's. They were Old Fashoned Ladies day of the week. My aunt was sitting at my dining room table and just cried out "That's Grandma's apron fabric"
