Feed Sack Apron Vignette

Starting back in the 1800's......
farmers bought their flour, salt, sugar and 
grains in cotton sacks.
 This was much easier to carry from the mercantile than barrels.
 The thrifty wives could then reuse them to sew clothing and household items.

I make a point to look 
for aprons made from feed the red apron below.
I think it was made in the 40's or 50's.

I love the scalloped edges....
 and the curvy pocket.
The red and yellow is so cheerful, too!

Often I will use these finds as patterns to make aprons for everyday use.
I lay the feed sack apron on craft paper and outline each piece.Then write notes to myself of how to sew it together.

That is how I made this toile apron...
 except I lined this one.
If you would like an opportunity to win it...
