Here are the aprons that I got from my dad's (mentioned here). They all belonged to my mother, so that makes them very special to me and I believe that one of them probably belonged to my grandmother first (which makes it even more special - I will be the 3rd generation in possession of that apron). Sorry it's a little cock-eyed.
The apron in the center is a Barbie sized apron. (I'm guessing it was made for me and my Barbie.)
That's just a casserole carrier, but it was with the aprons and I liked it.
This is a half-apron. Can you see the hand stitches around the bottom? It is also hand-stitched around the waist and at the top of each pocket (there were 2 pockets).
The long green apron is a full apron. To the left of that is the Barbie apron.
This was just some fabric that I found with the aprons. Not sure what I will do with it, but I liked it.
There were 3 bonnets in there too. I'm pretty sure that my mother never wore them. I don't know if they were my grandmother's, or if mom made them (as a decoration or something). I really don't know anything about them, but I'm keeping them too.
Here are 2 more half-aprons. They are not even hemmed. The bottom edge is the selvege edge.
It looks like I might now have an apron collection (small, but a collection non-the-less, or at least the start of a collection).
