Jennie's Aprons

Since unearthing these two aprons a few weeks ago I've been obsessively checking out vintage (and replica) aprons online.

These two belonged to my Grandma Jennie. I'm not sure how I ended up with them. I did inherit her old treadle sewing machine (c 1897). She told my mother "Charmain likes to sew, I think I'll give her my machine". What a great reason to inherit an antique!

This one is my favorite. Its made from an old dress c. 1930 (they never threw anything out, they always recycled materials).

This one is made from an old flour sack c. 1930. The trim is hiding where its been pieced together. My mom said Jennie wore this everyday.
