Some Cute New Creations

I managed an hour or two of sewing this weekend, never enough, but this was productive.  This first apron is cotton muslin, with some tulle fringe, a raw edge muslin ruffle, and a layer of antique flocked tulle ruffled around the base.  Added a little doily for a pocket, and we have this sweet confection!!!  Then, I pulled out an old linen skirt that I had saved for scrap (I LUV LINEN!!), and edited it into this cute little half apron.  The lacy accent appliques come from antique blouses and other old finds that I have scavenged.  Take a look!

You'll find these beauties at SoBo Style in Clintonville - check her out on Facebook!

 I'm loving the frills!  Then I took some vintage ticking, that my hubby was using for his antique muzzle loader!!!  Can't have him ruining this gorgeous red and white striped cotton!!!  I made a little vendor apron, and added a pocket of muslin printed with a vintage French label design.  Love it!!!

Keep watch!  More to come!  Check my etsy shop for more vintage finds as well as my fabrics and art.
