So I was digging through some of my vintage Needlecraft magazines, looking for some inspiration, and thought I'd share a few of the aprons in them. These are all from 1921 issues.

92  Dogwood Blossoms in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by 85%confusion on: July 17, 2008 03:53:52 PM
Yeah - another bib. Sorry. I'll be off this kick soon. =)

This one I love though, so I had to share. I hand embroidered the dogwood blossoms - it was a vintage embroidery transfer pattern from the 1940s, meant for a sheet set. I chose some retro-reminiscent colors to do the work in, and found a pink hand-dyed batik that was looking lonely in my stash, for the back.

93  Tuxedo Bib in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by 85%confusion on: July 15, 2008 08:56:19 PM
O.k., so not exactly clothing... but I've been having a blast making baby bibs as of late. That's what happens when your sis is preggers and the neighbor has just dropped by with her newborn.

This was pretty easy to make. I pre-pleated the fabric, then cut it out from the pattern I created. The bib is bright white and the bow tie is a pretty purple batik (sorry - the colors didn't photograph so well).
