My latest project - Emmaline


I have been wanting to make the Emmaline Reversible Apron from SewLiberated.com for a long time. (My 16 year old daughter is modeling it for these pictures.) Thankfully, our local quilt shop contest for June is aprons, so I had the incentive to get it finished. I think it turned out great! I went with brown and turquoise fabrics, as you can see, and I think it suits me perfectly. This wasn't a difficult project, but it took longer than I expected, due to all the hand sewing. The directions call for hand stitching the strap, and I always have better luck with gathering using hand stitching with clear thread (the stuff that looks like fishing line). I usually just use my ruffler, which creates pleats rather than gathers, but I thought the gathers would look better here. I'm very pleased with the results. Now I just have to deliver it to the shop and hope I win this time. I love that the shop has these contests. It really motivates me to get projects finished, and the prize money is good too!

Update - I WON!!! I got a $25 gift certificate, which means I made this incredible apron for free! YIPPEEE
