Shall We Gather... in the Kitchen?

In preparation for an upcoming class where I'll teach the vintage art of Smocking, I've just added this sweet little apron pattern to my Etsy shop.  

If I wear it around the house, my girls call it my "Little Old Lady" apron.  Haha, I love it!  New fabrics, vintage technique, it brings to mind memories of my Mom, Grandma or Great-Grandma in their respective kitchens.  My foremothers all wore aprons on a daily basis!  

Want to give smocking a try?  Here's the TUTORIAL.  And you can find the pattern for this adorable, sweet, smocked "little old lady" apron on my Etsy Shop HERE.

Ginghams seem to keep rising to the surface lately, and you can find a whole realm of gingham prints and wovens in varying sizes out there.  Pine Needles carries RBD Gingham in every color and size imaginable.  Just spreading the Gingham Love! 


  1. That looks wonderful. Thanks for the tutorial.

  2. what a very good tutorial, I have not smocked for a long time the last time I did any I covered balls with smocking for tree decorations maybe it is time to have another go have lots of smocking dots somewhere but not sure where. Looking forward to seeing more tutorials from you


So happy you stopped by for a visit! Thank you!
