Here are a few pictures of aprons from the Aunt Ellen’s Art Needlework catalog:
Three aprons for $1.49! I wonder what Linene was.
Mexican motifs seem to have been popular in the 40’s and 50’s.
My grandmother-in-law had several aprons made using the inexpensive hankies you could buy in the dime stores then. It was an easy way to put a splash of color into an otherwise plain apron. It’s too bad that dime stores no longer exist. You could buy all kinds of inexpensive things that are collector items now.
