Updated Old ShopKeeper Aprons!

Good Morning Friends!
It's 6 am here and chilly! Mr. OTM and I are getting ready to head out on a Junk Fest and before we left I had to link up to my girl Jami's AIR YOUR LAUNDRY linky she does every Friday.
Up this week are some cool vintage shop keeper aprons that I picked up last week at an antique mall. Mr. OTM spotted them and thought I'd like um...particurally because they have stains and a great worn feel. He was right! As soon as I saw them I was able to envision what I wanted to do. AND it was easy...thank goodness! My first thought was a transfer....

They started out like this...plain and ordinary...

then I added the vintage blue ticking divided pocket...




and PRESTO CHANGE-O!!
Now they're at the shop. I have 6 all together. I did one for myself that says Olde Tyme Marketplace, then 3 that say Vintage Market and 2 that say Marche aux Fleurs (flower market).
I love me an easy project and these worked out great!
Hop on over to Jami's and see some other great textile goodies to get you inspired.
Have a great day!
