Some Aprons

Time for the next project - making a couple of aprons. First, I pile a bunch of linens on the table. Then I start rummaging - and color-matching. This is the fun part and sometimes takes several days. (The dogs don't mind the mess!)
There is something wrong with every one of these pieces - a stain, hole, tear, or worn-out part. That's why I'm "allowed" to cut them. The perfect pieces are used for pillowcase dresses and bonnets.
Starting to color-match fabrics and vintage pieces.
Coming together . . .
All done!
Ready for pressing and some good photos in natural light (unlike these!)
Love, Linda


  1. These are all so very beautiful, and I love all the lace. Congrats....on getting your work published. That makes your work extra special...and it is.
