I've been apron obsessed lately, and I wanted to share my latest refashion. I found some great vintage pillowcases at the thrift store, so I decided to refashion them into aprons.


I fell in love with the colors of the pillowcase and it was a print I kind of remember from the 70's. I thought it would make a cute apron. I added a pocket with some embroidery and a vintage button detail.

Here are some others I made recently:



They were super easy and very quick. I have a tutorial on my blog if anyone would like to know how I made them!

Those are super cute! I love that you used the opening of the case for the hem at the bottom.

So cute! I have a pillow case from a thrift store that I got ages ago and I've been waiting for something awesome to do with it. Found it! Can't wait to use the pattern Smiley
I love these! I think my favorite is the first one because of the button on the pocket Smiley

I just finished mine today! Smiley
No pocket and I'm not the greatest with following directions, but it turned out well.
Thanks so much for the pattern!
