Estate Apron

I really want to go to some estate sales. My mom and sister found a vintage apron at one they happened upon and found a darling apron for sale. For a couple of bucks they picked up a cute treasure and then I found it tucked away in a bag in the basement. Finders keepers... Go to garage sales with material in mind: pillowcases, sheets, tablecloths, drapes, etc. You'll find some fun surprises.

Here's the original material:

I laid out the apron and made a pattern from it. Here's my version. The flower clip is an accessory to the apron.
I put it either on my right pocket or in my hair. It all depends on the mood of the day.
It's a short tie in the back. Unlike me, but you have to do what's best for the apron.
However, it was actually nice not to have so much fabric to turn inside out when making the ties.


  1. Hey Bonnie Belle! I am so glad that you started this blog! I have been waiting patiently for my Bonnie sewing update and I enjoyed it heartily!!! I love making aprons and have a couple in the works. I should post them. We can feed off of each others apron creativity. I love you!

  2. That sounds good to me. Eventually, I would love to do an apron swap!

  3. This is the first apron pattern I sewed almost two years ago. I made it out of well used sheets and it remains one of my most favorite aprons to date. Thanks for sharing. You are darling and your apron is darling.

  4. ooh, I love this one. I just love anything vintage. I'm going to keep an eye out for vintagy material at garage sales. :)


I love to hear your feedback.
