Auntie Dot's Apron

I was visiting over at my friend Sheri's the other day. She was sharing with me some of her mother's sewing. She showed me the most adorable vintage apron. {I keep forgetting to take a picture}...

I loved it so much that it was the inspiration for my newest pattern....

Super simple to make and loads of possibility for fabric choices! I think this pink and orange one turned out adorable...

Sheri tested the pattern and made this sew very cute polka dot and fruity one...

My friend Tammy made this one... I love the stripes and flowers...

I made this one with the pocket in vintage... I had been saving this piece of vintage fabric and I am so happy with how it looks on this apron...

And of course the pattern is for sale over at Pleasant Home on Etsy...


And I've got some some really fun KITS for sale too! I had so much fun putting together these apron kits...

If I had a picture of Sheri's vintage apron, you would see the inspiration for this kit...

This is one of my favorites ...

I thought the cupcake/cake/ice cream cone fabric was a great find... How cute would this be to wear while your baking Birthday goodies!
would be fun for a birthday

The pattern and all the fabric you need to make one apron are included in the kits...

You can buy the pattern separately too.

The shop has been stocked with more Abby's Treasure Box KITS and some Fabric Packs too!

So cute! I just love all the fabric patterns and color combos you came up with. I just visited your Etsy site and ordered the pattern and a fabric kit. I haven't sewn anything in many years but I am so excited to make one of these aprons. Thanks!!

Cute apron. My Mom wore aprons every day with big pockets to stuff things in when cleaning up.

Very sweet apron, Jodi. I may order a kit from your shop--I was just curious, though, about how you got the name for your apron. My nieces and nephews call me Aunt Dot so I thought it was fun to see an apron with that cute name!

Oh Jodi. What a darling apron. And so many options. :o) Super sweet.

And pockets too how handy. Great for carrying tomatoes in from the garden.
