Apron collection

This is the entire sum of my vintage apron collection. Kind of pathetic isn't it.

I picked up this green and pink one just this weekend. Love it.


















This red and white full apron was also found this weekend. I could spend a fortune on aprons. Well, that's if I had a fortune to spend.


















Sadly, I have no idea where I got this little apron. I love the embroidery on the skirt and pocket. So dainty!Check out the scalloped edge. It's sized to fit a smaller person than your's truly. Hey, I'm farm-raised.


















This blue and white stripe is my favorite. It was well loved and much worn at one time. The entire center is faded. How about those pockets? Look at all that rick-rack. This one cost me a whopping 25 cents at a thrift store.

Hi Aunt Jo,
Thanks for showing your aprons,I find a lot of mine at garage sales, and some I have had made by girls that are better at it then me. But I must say my first apron that I made a few weeks ago came out pretty good. I really surprised myself. So maybe you should make some too.
Thank you for your nice comments on my site, love the company.
Glad to see you are staying with the MARY JANE SITE so many come to the welcome wagon and then we never hear from them a again.
I think I like your little white apron best.

Thank you for visiting Nancy Jo.

I'm in the process of making an apron out of an old flour sack that my granny had. I just need to do the waist band and strings.

I enjoy the MJF site very much.
