More Aprons

This is another apron I made using a 1940's pattern, from the booklet "Ten All American Novel Aprons". It came together very nicely, and I decided to use buttons for the back/shoulder straps, as I couldn't figure out how to get into the apron if I did what the pattern called for, and stitched the shoulder straps to the waistband.

I was planning on making appliqués for the bib; it's supposed to have an apple appliqué, but I couldn't decide on which fabric to use, so I never got around to it.

I think it looks good without the appliqué as well, so I might decide to keep it like this. What does my readers think? Apple appliqué or not?


  1. Another pretty apron ;)
    My humble suggestion would be an applique with the same fabric cut on the bias.

  2. Nice one :o)

    I'll do some experimenting, and see what I can come up with :o)
