Farm Fresh Friday - Heritage apron

Mom  always wore an apron.
I can not longer use her apron...it is so worn... 
I don't think it can take much more laundering..

It had hand embroidery...that is beautiful!
The apron is made from flour sacks.
This year for my sisters birthdays...
I tried to re-create mom's apron
I'm not a fan of handwork...
so the embroidery is done with my machine...
My three sisters will have replica's of mom's apron..
Hopefully to pass onto their daughters.

  10. What a lovely gift for your sisters to treasure. Aprons were the first things we learned to sew in home economics classes back in the day. It's too bad they've gone out of style. Yours are lovely.
