My second apron order

I'd like to share my second apron order since the one I first made for myself several months ago. This one was designed around the vintage handkerchiefs given to me by the child's mother. I was able to use pieces of the same hankies, both on the child's apron and also on the matching American Girl apron. Aren't they cute? And I think that I found the perfect fabric to match the handkerchiefs. When I bought the fabric at Hancock's, I didn't know if it would match or not..........but look how nice it turned out! I used handmade bias tape on the edges to give this apron a different look, and switched the placement of the pockets around. Another new thing for me was the creation of several yo-yo's for each apron. Yo-yo's have been my most hated embellishment in times past, but I have recently acquired a love for them via Etsy. :-) I think they add the perfect vibe to these retro aprons!
All of the buttons on both aprons are vintage, as are the hankies (supplied by the customer). Everything else was store-bought, but it all blends in quite nicely with the whole retro-vintage feel.
The photos don't do these two justice, but...............
Thanks for taking a peek! :-)
