The Emmaline Apron

Now that the shower is past, I can show you what I was working on last week. πŸ™‚

This is the Emmaline apron, pattern available at Montessori by Hand.
I am absolutely in love with this apron – feminine, flattering, comfortable, and-


Remember that post last month about thrifted fabric?

Here’s what I did with that vintage 70’s sheet I got for $1.50. Course, the apron only used a 1/4 of the sheets, so there’s still a lot of fun left to be had from that dollar and a half!

The bride-to-be loved her apron, and the matching NoteTaker I made her. Tomorrow I’ll show you what a NoteTaker is. πŸ™‚
Now I need to make myself an apron.
As my sister-in-law, Joanna, said, wearing it makes you ‘feel like baking a cake’!

    I love to check out your blog to see what new and interesting thing you are up to. I also loved Claire's apron. Do you have a pattern you could share for that? I would love to make one for my granddaughter.
    Thanks, one of Joanna's aunts by marriage Margie

    How cute! Have you heard of Jessie Steel aprons? They are kind of like that too. There is a link on my blog, but I can't remember what it is off the top of my head. =)

    I'm glad you posted photos of it. Thank you so much for making it and the NoteTaker for me. (Fellow readers, you are in for a treat.) Joanna is right. I've been wearing it around a lot even when I'm not cooking and it does make you want cake. Maybe that is what caused me to make the cake-like muffins this morning. πŸ˜‰

    "Sigh" … makes me wish I had the patience to sew on a home machine. My years in auto upholstery with an industrial machine make it hard for me to wait while my mom's Singer "plods" a line. πŸ™‚

    I really like the look of the side that you used the vintage fabric on. It goes so well with that orange sash.
