Special for Aunt Maggie

Because she asked, because I'm her namesake, because she loves all things ya-ya and sweet. . . .


a bib apron and a clothespin bag to go with her new house in the country.


Aunt Maggie fell in love with the vintage kitchen curtains in my stash, but there wasn't much fabric for a bib apron, so I asked Rebecca if she had a nice, skimpy apron pattern.  She did!  It's from her great-grandmother, and it was so fragile and old that I felt compelled to trace it out first before using it.


The instructions assumed I knew a lot more about sewing than I did, so I also took notes as I sewed, just as I would do with a new recipe that I was tinkering with.

I'm definitely planning to sew more of these aprons.  So charming with just a yard of fabric, some rick rack, and some bias tape!  Might even sew a few for my shop. . .

Yes, please make some aprons for your shop! I was just looking at my clothespin hamper the other day and wishing for an apron! :) Catherine

What a pretty and useful gift! I love the apron pattern; the neck straps on chef's aprons bother my neck so I've been thinking about making an older style of bib apron like this.

And as always, your clothespin bag is wonderful.
