Hot and Spicy

When I was at the quilt shop last week, I picked up this one yard remnant of Caliente Peppers.  It's a cute little print with names of peppers printed on the fabric, Jalapeño, Habanero, Caliente to name a few.  Add some rick rack and this is one hot and spicy print perfect for a 50's apron.

The 1953 issue of Smart Sewing is full of tutorials on how to make everything from theater hats to petticoats and a 50's sewing book wouldn't be complete without a simple half apron pattern.  I tried to use the their measurements  but I soon realized it wasn't going to fit so I added four inches to the waistband.  Ice cream at night will do that to you!

Keep calm and put your apron on,


  1. A darling apron - I love the fabric. Also love that vintage book.

  2. Just the right fabric for this vintage look apron.

  3. What perfect fabric for this cute apron Betty Lou!! Thanks for sharing.
