I keep all my holiday textiles folded in a drawer and take them out when I get in the "holiday spirit." This year I took photos :)
I own a few Christmas aprons from the 1960s & 1970s.
A full apron with green and white stripes and a large "Santa's Helper" pocket.
A half apron made of a poly/cotton blend fabric with silver cord trim at the pocket and along the lower edge.
A fancy red nylon net apron with grosgrain ribbon waistband and ties, silver rick-rack, and a sequin-decorated felt Christmas tree.
These bloomers/pantaloons were made from two dishcloths and finished with red crochet trim and green satin bows.
An early Arts & Crafts-style embroidered pillow cover with fringe c. 1900.
A large holiday tablecloth with poinsettias, candles, and holly.
A small red tablecloth with winter scenes in white and colorful holly and poinsettias in the corners.
I'll post pics of my Christmas quilts soon.
I still have lots of shopping to do, how about you?
