Retro Flour Sack Towels Upcycled into Aprons

I found some darling retro feedsack towels at The Flour Sackery on Etsy.

Bet you know what I did with them!

I upcycled them into Retro Revival aprons.  I love how they turned out ~ so farm girl/country chic!  That's a style category, right?

I'm a huge fan of anthropomorphic graphics and fell in love with this image:

I really like how this retro image pops against the underlayer of gingham:

And I think my love of pie has been well established in prior blog posts, so no surprise I was drawn to this image:

Oh those are so cute, Cindy!

My apron came in the mail yesterday and it's so cute, too! Thank you so much! I've been sick so it was a good cheer me up present! Once I'm all better, I'll have my pic taken wearing it. ♥
