Vintage Tablecloth Apron

Here is an apron that I made from a vintage tablecloth.  The tablecloth had a couple of holes worn on one side so I cut it in half and used the good half to make the apron.


  1. I love the print on the tablecloth/apron. I collect aprons and vintage table clothes. I have thought of using the damaged clothes to make aprons but have had the guts to do it yet. I will post photos of my collections soon. I just started my blog and found you from your comment on Tie One On.

  2. Jenifir, I know exactly what you mean about the guts it takes to cut something even if it's damaged. My daughter loves this one so much she wants me to take the damaged half and make her one. I'll have to see if I can strategically place a pocket or something.

  3. You should totally submit this to the Sublime Stitching Upcycling Contest.


  4. Thank you so much for the suggestion and for leaving a comment. I think I may add a little embroidery to it before I submit it.
