Chicken Scratch Apron

I was bored so I went looking for aprons on Webshots and found a wonderful collection of vintage ones, including this chicken scratch apron. I am sooooo jealous of the lady who owns them. Click the photo so you can see it up close.

Vintage Chicken Scratch Embroidery on Gingham

I feel weird because I'm writing this on June 12 and scheduling it to post tomorrow. I don't know why I need to share that.

Happy Friday the 13th!

I love chicken scratch. Its so pretty! The theme this month at Tie One On (at Angry Chicken) is gingham and I'll bet there will be some chicken scratch aprons there. I'm thinking I'll try to make one, too, but I've got way more things I'd like to do than I have time for...

Thanks for the comment about the embroidered cards, Patty! I do poke the holes first, and then embroider. Not that different from cloth, although you do need to make sure the holes aren't too close together or it'll rip through. There will be more designs soon!
