Retro: Apron or Bonnet?

How about both! I got this apron on the left from Grandmother Johnson. Guess it is pretty old now but isn't it cute?  I made the red gingham apron on the right. She always had the cutest most useful items that were made by her and her family members. This apron pattern has big roomy pockets and buttons on the waistband when buttoned the apron becomes a bonnet.  read more...

Guess this will have to be my next addition to aprons in the shop...
Something fun and easy to make!
Have a great week.


  1. Those are cute! I love them both. I am praying for you and Deb to stay safe and warm through this storm.

  2. I have seen these, and it is wonderful that you have Grandmother Johnson's! You version is really cute. I think it is so neat how they are double duty!

  3. Dolly, those are adorable! I love, gingham too!
    So glad you are safe and warm and fared well through the storm... we were lucky!
    hugs to you and Heidi!!!
