Laundry Day Apron

A windy, rainy day afforded me the time to make this retro styled
laundry day apron.

It has four deep pockets across the front...
perfect for filling with clothes pins.

I just love the fabric. 
It is one that I have been hanging onto for a couple of years.
Vintage ladies...involved in all sorts of laundry day chores.

The pockets are a companion fabric....laundry day essentials.

Now that my embroidery machine is back from its repairs,
I am able to do fancy stitches once more.

Now, to move this little apron over to my selling blog (here).
I think I shall call her
"Minerva's Laundry Day Apron"
(She might make a good Mother's Day gift.....)

Your aprons are always so pretty. The fabric on this one is just wonderful. I'm actually looking for fabric to make a new clothespin holder and I'll now have to look for something laundry related. :-) Very, very pretty!

OMG, Love the apron but the name stands out for me. You see my sister and I call each other names of some great aunts. You see in the picture we have of the great aunts from olden days; Aunt Mahala is very tall which my sister at 5' 10" and put together. Aunt Minerva is short and I am 5' 1" and a little disheveled. So this Minerva could use the apron with laundry day tips on the fabric. So enjoy your blog, June

I had to make one more comment for I"m still chuckling over the apron's name. I had to post a picture of Mahala and Minerva on my blog today. Is there someone in your family that this apron was named after? Thanks for helping make this Monday joyful!
