OMG....!!!!

YES......OMG..!!!!......COME QUICK.....LOOK WHAT I FOUND last night digging through some of my many boxes and tubs of "stuff and things" I have bought at estate sales!!!! It's a kit for an apron. See the mailing envelope it came in (top left)....included is the lime green piece for the tie and sash. I didn't find the instructions that should have been included. The fabric seems like a rough course linen type.
I assume this is from around the 50's...??? Isn't it TOO CUTE?

  6. Very cute! I would guess (just from the colors) that it is from the sixties...although it has been said "If you can remember the sixties you weren't really there." :-)

  7. Ohh darling fabric. It is just the thing our oldest daughter adores. I am as happy as you are when I find something along these lines for a gift for her. Recently I found some pink and orange 60s flower print for her - yipppeeee.

  8. Wow- That is way cute. I think a current fabric designer needs to see it and do a reproduction piece!

  14. Fantastic. It is a lot of fun to find things that you didn't know you had or that you forgot about. I'm sure you can find a suitable pattern. Aprons are back in.

  20. Its darling. I have a bit of it too but just a tad. I saw some things made at anthropologie a couple years ago out of this fabric. So I know it has been remade by them. It is darling.
