First up are two granddaughters in lovely aprons that completely cover them both. This photo and the three at the end of this post are from two and a half years ago, a cookie making session near Christmas. I like to let them chose their favorite apron of the day. It is usually a different one each time, but as the years go on, they do decide on their favorites and ask for them.
This is my lovely little niece this year in the same apron shown in the older photo above. This is a light cotton floral with roses on dark blue. It is incredibly pretty, with large ruffles on the bib.
This is a nice ivy pattern on black, which my great niece is modeling for you. She did a great job. She kept saying, it's too big! I didn't have anything along that was her size, however, so she got used to it. I do have two child sized patchwork aprons which I haven't worked into a blog yet. One of these days...
The ivy apron again along with a sturdy cotton aqua number with great flowers and rickrack.
Another shot. Isn't is cute the way she is holding the pockets out? I asked them to hold out the skirts so we could see the aprons well. Only had to tell her once, and she is only just three! Fashion Week, here we come!
A nice barkcloth tropical number. The colors on this one are amazing.
Both of these vintage aprons sport rickrack and great florals. They would make super dresses for the nieces! Maybe in about 10 years I will photograph them again wearing them, perhaps they will fit by then.
This is a pretty little apron made of handkerchiefs. She just looks so precious in it. It kinda almost fits a bit. We hiked it up by her armpits. That's the secret!
Embroidered tulips and the ivy on black again. It must have been a favorite. The embroidered apron is a personal favorite of mine. I am rather fond of the "Dutch" influence in my kitchen.
We are back to cookie making with the grandkids. Takes a bit of elbow grease, as my piano teacher used to be fond of saying.
