Vintage Aprons.

Spent the day today running between Pinterest and making aprons! Really need to get a grip on the whole pinterest addiction, you know its bad when you look at your most recent pinning session and it tells you that you pinned 1 hour ago, 2 hours ago and 3hours ago!!! 
There was a 75minute telephone conversation that went on somewhere in between all that pinning and laundry was done too. Have I managed to justify it yet! I don't think so!!
Eventually got round to my task for the day which was to make some aprons for the Shambags new line of  vintage home linens. They won't be for sale for a while yet as we are hoping to do some work on the site and come back all new and revived with not only tote bags but aprons,table runners,tea cosies and some fabric gift items. This does however mean that I need to spend more time in front of the sewing machine and not the computer.

Here are the first line of Aprons.  As they are made with original vintage fabrics they will be a limited amount made and once they have gone then they have gone.

Half Apron with a single pocket with frill.

As this fabric was quiet busy I didn't want to add to many frills.

Full Apron with extra wide waist straps.

Wide waist straps always make for a good solid bow.

A close up so you can  see how vibrant the colours are.
This would look fab in a traditional kitchen or look equally as good in a modern turquoise colour scheme ( all the rage on pinterest).
More apron making tomorrow.
God Bless You.xx

Because of Pinterest, I am now getting ready to tear out the flooring in the hallway and redo it once I finish the dining room! I finally did board and batten, which I have been dying to do in the house!! Who are these people that started such an addicting website??? Kudos for making shopping for decorating ideas so simple!!! Great job on your first link parties:)
