Valentine-inspired Aprons

I've been busy sewing valentine-inspired aprons this past week.
 
 
Busy mixing hearts,
 
 
With pink and red fabrics,
 
 
 And candy fabrics too!  This is a bonbon print:
 
 
Candy dots:
 
 
And sugar sticks!
 
 
I thought a 1950's vintage tablecloth with vibrant long stemmed, red roses was perfect for Valentine's Day:
 
 
It was big enough for two full aprons plus a half apron (not shown).
 
 
Mixing and matching prints is what I like best about sewing my Retro Revival aprons!
 
 
 

I used pink, vintage crocheted trim and a vintage crocheted pot holder on this apron:

 
 And good, old fashioned polka dots on this one:
 
 
 I've listed all of these in my Etsy shop in case you want to take a peek.
 
 
They'll certainly last longer than flowers or a box of chocolate.
 
 
And I think they're just as sweet!
 
 
Hope you have a sweet day!

Well you've been a busy little bee, Cindy, and you have such beautiful rewards for all your work. I love all your aprons but I especially love that owl print. I'm in the Valentine mood now!

As always they're gorgeous Cindy! I love the vintage rose table cloth ones the best although they are all cute. You definitely have an eye for mixing and matching fabrics.
