Vintage Apron Tags

Cindy over at Rick-Rack and Gingham is hosting a couple of swaps for apron banner/tags. I came in late to join the swap, but Cindy, being the perfect hostess, gave me her spot in the Vintage Apron group.





















I used one of my favorite vintage patterns as inspiration for my aprons. So many pretty papers to choose from!




















And a back view. We needed to include an apron memory on our tag. My story is hidden under the apron. Just untie the apron strings.




















I have some mini clothes pins in my stash so I plan to clip my aprons onto some string for a clothesline banner.

On a sad note, we had a violent thunderstorm come through last night and it destroyed the Robin's nest shown in my previous post.

Hi Linda! These apron tags are just about the sweetest things ever!!! How beautiful you made each one. :) ... I'm so sad about the robin's nest. I'm hoping the baby bird(s) were somehow saved. I know that's probably wishful thinking, but I do hope so...poor things. xo Paulette

That's a shame about the nest.

I'm glad you took pictures. I took them too..but this darn mi-fi here won't let me post anymore pictures or blog. I only can email and comment...So My Dear Linda..the aprons were precious!! I slightly have regrets giving over my spot..because I don't get any of the cutttteeee vintage aprons..but I would do it again to have you in it!! I mean that!!!

Besides you made up for no aprons with that precious apron towel. As soon as I get home I will post a picture of it. You do really great work!! I am thinking of framing it and not using it..lol

I am glad to add you to my list of neighbors. In real life we would sit and chat and you could teach me to stitch!!And I could keep you in stitches..lol

Hugs from me..Cindy Rick-Rack and Gingham

Hi Linda, what cute aprons. Where do you get the cute vintage looking papers. I would love to get some for myself. So sorry about the birds. Nature can be harsh sometimes.
