My friend Molly Jo is opening her very own coffee house here in Buchanan, MI(today is opening day).  Awhile back she had asked if I would make the aprons for the coffee house and of course I said yes but had little motivation until I found a bolt of burlap at a church sale for $ .50.  This awesome find really inspired me because I know coffee beans come packed in burlap sacks.  I made the apron using no pattern and no measuring devices which made it even more fun.  This apron is so imperfectly perfect that Molly and her mother both love it and want 4 more.  Yay!!

Here is the Union Coffee House logo:

One strap is made out of an old bed sheet and the other is made using an embroidered table runner:

The next 4 will all be different.


Handmade and vintage goodness!
