Modern Sunbonnet Sue's Musings

Musings from the mind of a modern day Sue:
Church Ladies' Apron

It's Sunday afternoon and, in Michigan, we are back to Daylight's Savings Time. The "fall back" an hour time change gave everyone an extra hour of sleep, last night. Actually, I slept the same number of hours, going to bed one hour later and getting up at the same time. Figure that one out.

My DH and I, along with my in-laws, attended church with our eldest daughter, son-in-law, and grandson. It was a blessed day, hearing them give their testimonies in church. They recently began attending a church, recommitted themselves to God, and were baptized. They attend a vibrant, young church in Lansing. There are eight babies under one year of age and many from the Campus ministry. My father-in-law played his harmonica during the communion. God truly answers prayer.

My daughter asked me a couple weeks ago if I could make an apron that she could give to a friend, along with another item, as a Christmas gift. I had cut out a couple of aprons last year, from a Church Ladies' Apron Pattern by Mary Mulari, but only stitched up one of them. So, I pulled out the other apron and stitched it together last Sunday. I presented it to my daughter today. It's such a simple apron to cut and sew, because it's reversible and has a curvy edge. I like it even better than my Mom & Me Aprons pattern by Atkinson Designs.

The fabrics feature cherries. One was purchased back in the 90's, while the reverse was a fabric sewn into a curtain that someone gave me. The cherry designs fit perfectly with this vintage inspired apron pattern. I like this pattern so well, I would make it again and again. Maybe you can still find the pattern at your LQS or check out the Mary Mulari website.

Happy Stitching!

Pam I love the apron! I've been collecting a few apron books. My cousin and I go to the Country Living Fair in Columbus, OH the past 2 years and she has purchased over 30 vintage aprons. She wears an apron everyday. I'll have to see if I can get the photo from Facebook over to my gallery. My cousin and I had aprons on. Mine I made because I cannot reach behind me to tie an apron anymore. I found one like it at the fair but got it home and it's a little small so passing it on to my cousin. I enjoyed your blog on aprons. My cousin and I are really into aprons.

Very cute Sue, I wear an apron once in awhile but usually forget.  I think it is kind of a habit thing.
