Vintage Apron Remix

I made this apron for my partner in the Vintage Apron Remix swap through the Flirty Apron site. What a fun swap! It gave me a reason (like I needed one!) to prowl our local thrift stores, yard sales and antique shops in search of just the right vintage linen. I had a lot of fun and even dragged Riff along for some of the trips, but alas, the right linen was not to be found. Finally, there on etsy I spied the absolute perfect tablecloth. Gold and black embroidery on off-white linen fabric. Heavenly. I was also tickled that the seller was in Portland, Oregon, so even though I didn't find my tablecloth here on the north coast, it still came from our state.
I used an Indygo Junction pattern as my base and changed it up for my own needs. The waistband and ties are a gold silky material and I added a vintage-style button on the waistband just for a bit of character. I'm really happy with how this apron turned out and have enough tablecloth left to make another. Yeah! I hope my secret partner likes it as well....

You did a wonderful job with the apron. It's gorgeous.

Keeping you in my prayers, my friend. Happy Easter.

You will love Max Lucado's His Name is Jesus. Hope you are able to pick it up.

I bought the boys a couple of books by Lucado when they were small and they always enjoyed them.

Prayers are with you, my friend.
