I made this Burlap Apron from a mid 1960's Aunt Lydia's rug yarn booklet. I still need to finish the blue stitchery on it. I also made a second Burlap Apron but rather than adding stitchery I am going to add yoyo's to embellish it. This is a creation of mine that I call "Harvest Time"... This apron is made from a mans XL shirt.
I remember seeing an old episode of "Leave It To Beaver" where the mom-June Cleaver was wearing an apron with huge pockets for her house cleaning tools so I thought why not one to wear out in the garden or orchard...roomy enough for enough apples or peaches to bring into the house to make a pie! Plus there is a smaller pocket to put your cutters or hankies or cell phone!
I embellished the side ties with yoyo's but they did not show in the picture.
This apron is from a Butterick pattern. It is fun & whimsical..I have made several from this pattern. In fact I am thinking of doing a Cowgirl/Western one next.....and as always,,,,it has yoyo's on the ties & pocket....
