"Blue Toile" is a vintage looking apron with deep round pockets and long ties.  It is made from 100 % cotton blue and white toile fabric with enchanting tea cups and tea pots.  It is trimmed in blue toile flowered fabric and pretty white eyelet lace.

 

 

"Grammies 1943"  Vintage apron is made from red/pink/white swirl feedsack fabric trimmed in white lace.  Grammies apron has large deep pockets and long ties. Both fabric and apron design are exact reproductions from the early 1940's.

 

Here is Erika's apron she made her mom for a surprise birthday present.

 

"Hearts" vintage repro apron dates to the middle 1950's, when the heart patch pockets were very popular.  It has a waist band, long ties, color contrast bottom, and is accented  with mauve bows.

 

"Auntie's Retro 1940 - 1950's halve apron" has long ties, large deep pockets, pretty rick rack trim,  white lace, and fits just like the aprons did back when.  The red/white/navy feedsack fabric is a 1943 reproduction.

"Marigolds" Our "Marigolds" bib garden apron was named after it's golden color fabric with pretty flowers printed on it. This garden apron has 3 large front pockets with green trim, a decorative top pocket with feminine eyelet trim, and long ties.  The large apron piece goes all the way to the back to protect your clothes as seen in the photo above.

 

"Christmas Holly" handmade kitchen apron is made from pretty red cotton calico Christmas fabric with green leaves and red berries  printed on it.  The waistband and long ties are made from the same fabric.  Add a Christmas cookbook or magazine and a cookie cutter and you've got the perfect gift for mom, friend, sister, or grandma.

 

The apron came about because of practical necessity. In years gone by, people didn't have the luxury of owning a large wardrobe. Washing and drying clothing was not done on a frequent basis. So aprons served a practical purpose of covering up the dress underneath to project it from soiling. This made washing much easier.  The apron would be washed every couple of days but the dress or clothing underneath did not have to be washed as much, perhaps maybe once a week.
