Vintage Pillowsham Apron - Ready for Giving

I love vintage pillowcases and pillow shams. I make pillowcase dresses for Madeline and they are so cute.

Today we celebrated my mother's 82nd birthday. As part of the present we gave her I made a vintage pillow sham apron.  She had seen one I'd made for a girlfriend of mine and said she would love one too.

This is the sham it started out as...

A bit of cutting....

Sewing and ironing....

and Voila a pretty little apron.










These particular colours and types of flowers are so like my mother. I know she'll like it.

Happy Birthday Mom. Love you..... Judi xoxo
