Dilly Gets an Apron too!

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!

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 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.

  1. how adorable! I cant wait till your partner gets it so we can see a full pic. Love the little apron on Dilly too.Ü

  2. Nice job Kat's Tail! What a lucky dog Dilly is to be attired in such a cute vintage apron!

  3. If I'm your partner, can I please have Dilly too?

  4. Your swap partner is lucky indeed! I'm guessing that since I'm only a long way from you and not long long way from you that it won't arrive on my doorstep... A shame, I would have cherished it dearly!

  5. Dilly is just tooooo cute wearing that cute mini apron.
