Pink Saturday – children’s aprons from the op shop

It’s been a wonderful week of op shop finds. Amongst many other things I bought these sweet little children’s aprons. The first is hand knitted in a great pleated rib with a delicate lacy pattern. It’s pink and green – my favourite colour combo, and is reversible. The waistband features some lovely daisy flowers:

I’ll have to find some pretty satin or velvet ribbon for the ties, and I may dress it up with a few vintage buttons:

The second apron is this cute pink bib style with pink crocheted edging. It’s been hand-embroidered with a singing cat, and there is a little pocket which is the cat’s music – very sweet (apologies – it needs ironing!).

I’ll be posting more of my op shop finds over the next week so stay tuned. There’ll be a couple of pieces of VERY nice deco furniture!
