How To Make an Apron From Dish Towels

Here's a gift idea that is simple easy to do! I sewed a kitchen dish towel to the matching dish cloth, added some ribbon for ties and you have a durable, cute bib apron.

Vintage Embroidered Baby Quilt

Ok, so you know by now that I love vintage embroidered linens! Especially pillowcases and baby quilts. I was able to purchase another vintage baby quilt and am so excited! There are five blocks of embroidered babies set on white with yellow borders and a white ruffled edge. All the quilting appears to be hand done and this vintage quilt is in excellent condition! Sorry folks, I won't be offering it for sale in my Etsy shop. Too cute. Must keep! Here's a few photos I just took (sorry not much light today outside so photos aren't great). Enjoy viewing...
