I finally have an apron in the shop. I actually had the apron finished about a week ago, but it is the "tweaking" that takes awhile. I decided to change the fabric flower into three yoyos, I added more buttons and a pocket. I knew that I wanted the apron to have a removable tea towel but couldn't find a tea towel in my stash to please me. So, I embroidered a vintage design onto a repurposed feedsack pillowcase. Can't believe that someone took a feedsack and made it into a pillowcase, it was a little scratchy for the face. But, I guess when you need a pillowcase and nothing else is available, you can't be too picky. Or maybe you can't afford a pillowcase and you use what you have.
Above: Grandma Eva's Apron. I named this apron after my great grandmother Eva. It is made from a repurposed vintage sheet so it is very soft. The cream ric rac is also vintage.

Above: Hand stamped a vintage silverplated spoon to go with the apron. I have a few more fun ideas for these spoons that I hope to finish in the next couple of days and share with you. The spoon is functional, you just need to run it through the dishwasher to remove the non toxic paint I used on the letters. It reads "pickles".

Have a great rest of the night!!
