Now that I can see my gorgeous vintage fabric my mind is turning with all the colors and patterns. I want to sew them all at one time. With restraint, I pulled out two gingham aprons from this past years purchases and started cutting and pinning.
Gingham in aqua and pink. One with rick rack the other stitched in chicken scratch. Both handmade and lovingly worn. I took advantage of the patterns and sewed along the natural seam line.
I drew my inspiration from this darling rubber doll that came in the mail via ebay. The bright pink dress and aqua eyes worked so well together they were worth repeating.
I always feel like I need to add a modern touch to these pieces. Something of a signature. This is vintage stitching pattern on white linen. Just a little bit to say it is my work.
Miss Jenny in her mary jane's. Perfect hair bows always in place. A slouchy teddy fast asleep cradled in her arms. She is just darling.
The back was just a happenstance. All the leftover fabric used just so. Even the apron strings made the ruffle. It might just be my favorite so far.
Pink bows are for kittens too.
Reagan has found a new spot. It is the dough bowl on the game table in the basement. I think he thinks he really fits. I wouldn't dare tell him how much he is hanging out! He will sleep here for hours? Now if only I can get him to wear a pink bow!
