Generally speaking, I am not an apron wearer.
I will admit to sporting one occasionally when undertaking something particularly messy in the kitchen, such as baking, or preparing beetroot.
Nevertheless, I could not resist purchasing a couple of pinnies at the vintage fair – purely for the fabric.
Now – a common problem – I’m not sure I can bring myself to cut them up!
My purchases set me on an interweb quest.
I did a little trawl of Etsy’s vintage wares and found a few more pleasingly pretty pinnies for your perusal.
Do you think they make them so cheery as an antidote to the drudgery of housework?
I am not normally the lucky type of soul that attracts free gifts and wins competitions wherever I go.
I’ve had my moments, but generally speaking my luck confines itself to areas of life not involving competitions of random chance.
I won something!
Georgina Giles is a mistress of monsters and sewing maven extraordinaire.
Following her exploits on her lovely blog qualified me for inclusion in her Present in the Post giveaway. Into the hat – or rather vintage glass jar – my name went. And out it was subsequently pulled!
I am now the lucky owner of a lovely pinny, made by her own fair hand.
Be sure to subscribe to her blog. Not only can you find out how to make a pinny all of your own, but your name might be next out of the jar!
