Handmade Vintage Embroidered Pillowcase Craft Apron

I will be a vendor at an upcoming event and realized I needed an apron to hold all my stuff! So I went through my stash of vintage pillowcases to find ones that were not suitable to upcycle into a pillowcase dress (maybe too thin, had a flaw, etc).

Found so many adorable embroidered pillowcases just perfect for half aprons. I made a few, sorry, forgot to take pictures along the way on this project to share as I was so excited! I'm sure the aprons will look cuter on a model - laying flat is so boring, but wanted to show off my latest project.

Look for these in my Etsy shop for sale soon...

The event I'll be attending as a vendor is Posh Kids Consignment Sale on April 30th and May 1st in Loomis, CA. Go to to find out more details... (I'm not set up for credit cards at this kind of event, but take cash & checks).

Great idea to consign - repurpose, reuse, recycle!

Grand Niece's 1st Birthday Gift

Harper turned one last week - here's the pillowcase style dress I made for her. It's Michael Miller's 'Lil Cowpokes' print and I've added a red hem. I used a brown ribbon that looks like a rope but is super soft. Hope she likes it!

Beautiful Blue Sky

Today I am thankful for the beautiful blue sky, sun that warmed my bones, healing properties of medication, unconditional love of my precious cat, and joy my family brings.
