A Great Fabric Find–Vintage Drink Cozies


apronpocket_1I thought they were  doll aprons–

But no.  The woman manning the table at the estate sale told me these were the wine charms of their time.

Back in the day when Coca Cola came in thick, glass bottles, ladies of a certain age made tiny aprons to tell their drinks apart.

I now own 8 of these drink bottle cozies.apronpocket_2

The fabrics are wonderful.  Some are feedsack remnants.   The workmanship, using narrow bias tape in mid-century primary colors, is splendid.   These cozies are way too cool for the plastic bottles soft drinks come in now days.

So I’m going to reuse them as pockets on the aprons I love to make.  What do you think of the idea?apronpocket_3
