Good day all! Nice to have you here at Romance & Relics. I would like to share my banner (almost finished). I took apart a relic. This dotted swiss was once an apron. PINK & white so sweet. Imagine the lady that once used this for all the family holidays, imagine just how special all the meals must have been. I bet she put this 'ole thing on with great pride. That's what I thought the moment I found it in a pile of good stuff at the thirft store. It was a hand crafted apron for sure back in the day. I gladly took it home and pulled it out from time to time priming the inspiration side of the brain. One day a few weeks back it came to me. a BANNER. As I held the apron strings out from side to side I immediately saw it. The body of the apron would be for the pennants and the waist band would be where the pennants hung from. All the other prettties are embellishments I had. My next step is adding J~~O~~Y~~ to each pennant. Not sure what type of medium I will use for the letters maybe a combination of paper and fabric. This was such a JOY to create! and very easy. Next time you come across a vintage apron and not sure what to do with it just think BANNER. Thanks for your visit today.
