Vintage {Christmas} Tablecloth Aprons

Tis the season for upcycling my enormous stash of vintage Christmas tablecloths into aprons.

The past two years, try as I might, I've only sewn a few aprons from my Christmas tablecloth collection, so this year I'm determined to create a big inventory of Christmas aprons available for purchase!

I think I have enough of these tablecloths to sew nearly 60 aprons.  Here's a preview of a couple I've made so far:

And for you vintage tablecloth lovers out there, don't worry!  These are all "cutters," with stains and holes, too worn to actually use on tables; I work around the flaws.

Think I can finish them all this Spring?  I'll keep you posted!

I wanna see piccy's of the new digs! Let's see how this city girl, who went country, and is now back in the city...........is doing? I'm also one of those weirdos that would still use a stained and damaged table cloth, just for the story it could tell. I know, I just don't fit in!
