Vintage Cloth = Vintage Apron

Don't you just love finding vintage cloth - not used - just like someone bought it and you wonder what they intended to make with it...

...this one came with piping and a red zipper - so I think they were going to make a dress with it...

...this blue one - I don't know...and it's a little bit faded on one side...

...but I absolutely love the tag - there's 1 1/2 yards - I'm thinking they were going to make pajamas and this would be PERFECT for some pajamas - what do you think?

...but the circle cloth (with it's piping) put me in mind of one of my Nanny's old aprons - I just keep it in the drawer with all my other aprons - but I never use it - it is so threadbare and even has a couple of tears in it - but I love it and it reminds me of Nanny...


  1. how cool!

    love that apron - i smell cigarette smoke and mary kay makeup right now!!!

    love, k

  2. oh!
    so - you're going to make a copy of nanny's apron - how fun!
    and yes, pajamas!

    i love vintage fabric as well. ;)

  3. I love re-using thrifted/antique fabrics. i find so many in good condition. I can't wait to see the apron you make. Great finds!

  4. I love finding awesome vintage fabric. Right now I am really into vintage sheets. Good luck with your apron!

    Great finds! Can't wait to see what you turn them into.

  6. I love the blue (and white) fabric. I would love a tablecloth from it :-)

  7. I LOVE finding vintage cloth. Also any sort of vintage kitchen tool even if I would never have a use for it.

  8. Very fun fabrics. I am inspired. If I could just find my sewing machine... it's got unfinished knitting projects piled on top!
