|Me and my mom|
Christmas 1962- I would of just turned 5
Wearing an apron made by my great grandmother.
My mom kept that little apron and I got it from her a few months ago.
My sewing project last night was copying that apron and sewing one for grand daughter Elizabeth. I just folded the old apron In half and laid it in on my fabric on the fold and carefully cut around it. I also cut out ties and a pocket, just eyeballing it.
Can you see the new fabric is printed with tiny tomatoes? Elizabeth loves eating May-toes!
The edges are all covered with narrow bias tape and a little button fastens the neck.
It took me less than an hour to sew it up. I am not sure it will fit Elizabeth right now as she is just 2 1/2.
I'll just hold on to it until it does fit her. And I better sew up another one for grand daughter Andie who just turned 1.
