They used to have great little patterns in the newspaper. Some were quilts others crafts...and some were one yard wonders. Novel little aprons you could craft from 36 little inches of fabric. Most likely the size of a feed sack. I would have wanted to work at the feed store just to see the fabric on the sacks and procure my fair share.
This is my version of such a clipping. Tiers of vintage kitchen fabric.
Ladled in geometric fifties finery.
Lined with bubble gum pink and stamped with a new label.
Complete with a millinery brooch.
Curved and cute.
This apron sings tea party.
Or perhaps Easter Dinner hostess.
