Kerry's apron

This week I am sewing madly to update my Etsy shop, and to get ready for (hopefully!) 2 craft shows next month.  The first takes place on Saturday August 8th at the drive-in on hwy 99 in Newburg, called Craft-In.  I am also hoping to get a booth at Portland’s own Crafty Wonderland on Sunday August 9th.  One craftacular weekend!

I am loving putting together these aprons, made with both vintage fabric (lots of cute pillowcases!) and lovely new fabrics, such as Amy Butler and the like.  Tiny bits of old lace, hankies, embroideries, rick rack, and other fun finds make each one unique and fun for me to make!
