Dilly is modeling her apron made from bits and scraps left over from my swap partner's apron. I couldn't bear to toss any part of the vintage fabric away!
My inspiration came from a set of 8 cherry napkins I found at an antique shop in beautiful condition albeit fading of the cherries due to years of careful washing and pressing I am sure.
My partner will receive all eight napkins . . only two of them went into the apron as pockets! The ice blue cherry fabric I used was a table runner from the 1960's and the little strip you see on Dilly is all that was left - whew!
We had so much fun looking for recipes and found a charming website that preserves recipes from the past called RecipeCurio.com. Get ready to make Cherry-O-Cream Cheese Pie-yum!
Thank you Shawnee for the opportunity to create and meet new friends. A special thank you to Tara for starting the whole swap off with a good laugh. I will be mailing my package out on Tuesday as it has such a long long way to go and I can't wait to receive.
