Recycled Apron

Thought I would like to post this vintage recycled apron I made yesterday.
While looking in my fabric stash. I found this old jumper I use to wear in the 90's.
I took off the back basically, and cut sashes from the back piece. Then I cut off the bottom, moved it up and added this lovely old vintage
doile to the bib. Since there were already button holes, I just decided to do a faux buttoned neck band. Added a cute pocket and I think it turned out pretty cool. What do you think. I will be making many more aprons, each one of a kind with old vintage doilies attached for my new Etsy shop that I will be getting up soon. What do you all think of the doile apron? I believe in the three R's. . .Recycle-Redo-Reuse!

Those are really very good. Unfortunately I am not very artistic or good at arts and crafts. Although I do belong to a volunteer organization that enjoys doing that...

That's a cute apron!

Oh, it's beautiful! You did a really exquisite job!

You asked about swapping - maybe something small...paper...tags?

How's that sound? :-)
