This was possibly my easiest sewing project to date - I should have started my sewing 'career' with this!
While in Cannes last year, mum (Jen) and I bought these vintage linen tea towels at the local market for E2 each!
I sewed a striking wide black and cream striped ribbon near the top edge.
This pretty cotton ribbon with hearts and a red trim an inch or two below the red printed line.
Added a row of various Incomparable heart buttons in red and terracotta.
And now have a lovely skirt apron so that I can cook up some dishes with love this Valentine's day!
I love the combination of vintage faded printed linen, cotton ribbons and buttons.
Complete with the initials of the original owner - I wonder who they were and if they would be impressed with the apron and cushion covers we made using them...?
