Vintage Aprons Continued

Happy Birthday to Helen. Today would have been her 87th birthday. All of us learned our crafty skills from her. She of course learned to repurpose long before there was such a word. Thanks mom for all of the lessons you taught us about life, living and making do with what God gave us to use and take care of.

This is Helen, in one of her aprons somewhere in the mid '60's. This apron was strickly functional. It was a simple cotton print with seam  binding finished edges. The pattern was a criss cross in the back with no other closure. There weren't even pockets on this one. This was one of her every day work aprons. Isn't she beautiful? And check out those glasses.  Yikes!
