Pertending I'm Scarlett O' Hara and Sarah's Special Apron

 I just thought I'd share a few pictures of the apron I made for Sarah over at Gypsy Mermaid.
You've all heard me talk about Sarah before.  She's such a sweetheart.  She had a certain kind of Apron/top in mind and gave me an idea of what she was looking for. Now I'm not a pattern maker by any means so when she said she loved it and it fit I was thrilled.  

I just added a few extra touches with some vintage table scarfs and doilies.

Made a few flowers and added a few buttons.  Buttons make everything better.

I like finding a way to upcycle old items into something totally different and new.  This fabric started out as a pair of drapes with a burlap band at the top.  I felt just like Scarlett O'Hara making this one.  Hee-hee.

I was already to do more creating last week but it wasn't to be.  Now my heads just stopped up and I'm very uncreative.

Hugs ya'll......Tracy :)


  1. That is the cutest apron I have ever seen! I'm not just saying that either! It is so stinkin' adorable. I don't even own an apron, but I would wear that one every day if I had it. :)
    Great job!

  2. Stunningly darling, sugar! I add buttons and those handmade flowers to my aprons also. It makes me feel special to wear an apron!

  3. That is the coolest apron ever!! I'd just hang it for display and smile every time I looked at it. Good job, girl. It's so sweet.

  4. Tracy!! This is so gorgeous girl!!!! I just love each and every detail ~ such a beautiful job...I hope you get to feeling better sweetie, please rest and take good care of yourself ~ hugs and love, Dawn

  5. Gone With the Wind is my all time favorite book. I am going to start thinking of you as Scarlett. That new apron is beautiful, as all your aprons are. I am bummed as all of our main floor is in one room as we are having the floors done this week and I really need to get to your apron that you gave me for Memorial Day! It is the epitome of summer!

  6. By far my favorite apron of yours ever!!! LOVE it!!!

  7. How adorable!! Think I need to put my thinking cap on and look around for my own upcycle apron. Thanks for sharing.

    Have a God Filled Day
