Aprons and More

These two aprons are made with my own patterns.




I'm seeing more and more of this vintage Halloween print. I'm not much for putting on a Halloween costume, but I'd love to wear this to pass out treats.





You can't go wrong with vintage roses. Wonderful colors on this fabric.







I was lucky enough to get in on Elizabeth's (Creative Breathing) Christmas tag swap. Wow! These swaps sure fill up fast! If you're not on your blog soon after it's posted, you've missed your window of opportunity. The only reason I hesitated at all to sign up was the number of tags to make. 22 in all!!! That ought to keep me busy.










This is the image I've chosen as my starting point for my tags. I've got some cute paper to go with this and I bought a container of white flocking. I'll have to experiment with that first since I've never flocked anything before.(that didn't exactly come out right... LOL) I'm not sure where I'm going from here but it will come to me.

You crack me up!! Ilove the vintage apron print also. I don't decorate or do Halloween either. But some of my neighbors do and a couple of my grandkids do so it would be nice to have a cute festive wholesome apron on.

I love that halloween fabric too, but I also have no reason to decorate for Halloween, I live in a 55+ community and I have no grandkids yet! But that second apron immediatly had me thinking of my grandmas! They both wore that style, and would have loved that fabric! What trip down memory lane.....Thanks! Sandy

Wonderful aprons! No, you can't go wrong with vintage roses. :)

That's a cute image you've chosen for your tag, I think I have mine picked out too, but I MUST finish my apron pockets first!
