Finally Done

I didn't think I would make the deadline. We were hit by a Spring blizzard.It started snowing Wed night and didn't stop until Sat around midnight. Also we didn't have power until Sunday. There are still 3000 resident with out power yet today. We ended up with over 3 feet of snow. So... no sewing was going on around here. is my reversible apron.
This side with the chickens is a clothes pin style with pockets across the bottom. The middle is a cross stitch from a vintage pillow case along with vintage button and trim.

On this side.... the little chick pocket is from a
corner of a vintage table cloth.

I had ordered something to include in my package, but because of the storm there has been no mail delivery for the last 4 days and it has not arrived. So....With my apron I have added some of my vintage sewing notions, including lots of buttons.
I inherited thousands of then. Hopefully my secret swapper will have some use for them.


  1. That looks like a fantastic package! Love the buttons! Hope you thaw out soon!

  2. What a great package!

    I love the blue/chicken side of the apron-- and I'm not into the chicken kitchen decor, but that's fabulous!

  3. I absolutely adore this apron! It's just darling! Hope you warm up soon :)

  4. I cannot image what you could have had on order that would be a better 'extra' than that bunch of notions. This apron is beyond adorable! Great use of color, and very inventive placement of fabrics.

    You did great!!!

  5. what a delightful apron and a wonderful job! Your swap buddette is a lucky lady no doubt!

  6. ooh-ooh-ooh! another great idea to steal! i love the idea of using pillowcases to make clothes pin aprons...and I really like the flip side.

  7. I am so in love with this apron!
    It is so super cute!!
    I hope it is comeing to Alaska!!
