Apron strings


New apron

Made something! Finally. Actually, I made this a while ago, but just found the photo in my stream. I'm still crazy busy with last-minute home improvements as I scurry around to get ready to host some old friends.

Anyway, I made this apron from a piece of striped IKEA fabric and a vintage Vera napkin I got on ebay. I love vintage Vera stuff. Really reminds me of my childhood. My mom must have liked it because I think we had quite a few Vera sheets, tablecloths and dish towels. I still have one set of sheets from my bed in h.s. and sure enough they are Vera. They couldn't be vintage though. That would make me too old.

The rain is back around here. I had convinced myself that rain was only for June and really not going to return until August. Oh well. My grass needed it. (trying to sound happy about it).

More home projects to follow...

So cute! What a great idea to turn a napkin into an apron!

Thanks! I just turned four anthropologie napkins into pillows (sounds like a magician's trick.) Pics to follow in the daylight.
