Crepe Hallow E'en Aprons...never heard of 'em.





I was just browsing the internet when I came across these super cool Hallow E'en Aprons! I never knew such things existed...

~Hallow E'en Crepe Aprons from the 1910s to the 1920s~
Crepe Aprons are rare Hallow E'en collectibles. The companies that made crepe paper, such as Dennison and American Tissue Mills, found that they could, using the same crepe paper, create costume accessories at very little additional cost. The aprons were made from the crepe rolls. The crepe was actually sewn. The maker would sew a crepe boarder around the edge, adding a cloth or crepe ribbon at the top. With Dennison's products, you can often find the name of the design in their Bogie Books. The apron is about 22 inches tall. A few of the simpler designs are slightly smaller. ^_^

These are sooo neat! To see more, go to...http://www.wordcraft.net/halloween5.html

Me thinks that these would NOT hold up too good to water and almost anything else...ha! But...they are fab and I'd wear one around! :o)
