I find a lot of really nice linens in shopping secondhand sometimes. This panel of blue floral linen looked perfect for a retro style apron to me. I don't know what it was before, maybe a curtain part or a table covering?

So I added a cute blue checked pocket and ties and an appliqued eyelet lace heart on the pocket to make it more interesting. I don't know if the retro apron thing is still going on, but I love aprons, if only to hang up by a hook and look nice!! Smiley




I hope you like it! Thanks for looking!!

I really love the fabric.  And the lace heart such a nice touch.
