Vintage style doll apron and traveling Ruthie

First up is traveling Ruthie. Ruthie visited us for a couple weeks. I sent her off with a new outfit, complete with her own bag.



I love this style of apron. The vintage-look fabric is perfect for it. The rick-rack is vintage. One of the vendors at the little antique store just up the street had vintage sewing notions for sale probably over a year ago. I finally put one to use.




Now you may be wondering why all the doll clothes all of a sudden. I've discovered that I can cut out the little pattern pieces right at the kitchen table or on the ironing board and that I can do it while Amy reads her school books to me. Larger sewing projects aren't so convenient. I'm sure I'll move on to something else after bit, but for now I'm enjoying it. I really hope to start knitting again!! And there's the hand quilting to do also, and other quilts to start for the orphans, more baby slings to start, etc. Happy sewing.

The apron fabric reminds me a little of the pillow cases grandma used to make.

The traveling doll reminded me that I had seen another type of bag you might like to make. It was a foldover style similar to a book cover, but the inside had individual little pockets for crayons.
