Sue, my blog buddy from Kentucky was kind enough to send me
a very large, bulging box of vintage linens, doilies and various pieces of fabric
thingies for my sewing/creating pleasure.
Sue, you are the best!
There were so many items... Where to start?
|Seam ripper at the ready!|
This piece caught my eye immediately.
Window valance, very detailed window valance, hummmmm.
Since I didn't need any windows to be valance-d
I decided to make it a reverseible apron.
(I've been on an apron kick lately).
I removed the rod pocket casing and then went to my fabric stash for
a complimentary fabric for the waistband and pockets.
The button stash was next.
And perhaps a rose embellishment on the other pockets?
|Pretty pink roses.|
retired window valance becomes new, up cycled apron.
What do you think?
That was a big box, there's more redo's on the calendar!
Till next time,
