New on my etsy aprons and bags

So i am trying to post new items on etsy on Sundays. This way they have a little time online before they are up for grabs at the Farmers Market
this is my spokesman
I am working on having some " only on etsy" items but for now that is the farmers Market privilege(I sell things a the market before I have a chance to post on etsy). Items at the market are also 25% less than he items on etsy to cover my time it takes to post and the cost of using etsy.

******************Here are a few new things***************

Little chick apron! So sweet, with dark green and light green gingham skirt and recycled vintage smock. The smock has a pattern of old timey weather veins that are too cute. The pocket is a patchwork of some really sweet swatches with two vintage plastic accent (non functional) buttons. The neck strap is a button closure that also has vintage plastic buttons. The waist strap is sturdy and dark green. This apron would fit up to a 14 comfortably.

Pretty pink fishing on the pond apron. I so heart this apron! The skirt is from a 1960’s bed sheet and the smock is a new green polka dot with a patch from a vintage tablecloth of two fellas fishing on a pond! The patchwork pocket includes the barn from the same “ farm” themed tablecloth. All pockets are fully lined. The neck strap is the same 1960’s bed sheet material and is a tie closure. The waist strap is sturdy, yellow, new, sportswear cotton. That coordinates perfectly with the yellow flowers on the skirt fabric. This apron would fit up to a 14 comfortably.
I also finished these two pieces this elephant bag;
Elephant project/shop tote. This bag measures 12x16. The patch is a combination of vintage fabric and an elephant image from a safari sheet set. The elephant looks as if it is a wood block print. There is an interior pocket perfect for a cell or ipod . The handle is green fat corduroy with strip of fabric sewn on the handles at the point where you grasp.

and this market skirt in cool tones;
Cool tones vintage fabric skirt size med to large (8-10). A-line, market skirt with some fabulous new (to me) vintage fabric. The front and back are two different fabrics. The front is the prettiest little flowers in circles and the back is polka flowers on a dusty blue background. The pocket is fully lined patchwork of coordinating fabrics. All in cool tones. Hits just above the knee and has an elastic waist.

I love how "my" fabric looks on the apron! So great! I KNEW that would fit right in with your designs...

I think I may need that market skirt. I wear both of mine all the time and they are so great for warm weather...
