Amelia’s Aprons….

In my article, Queen of My Own Domain, I mentioned the possibilities of starting home based work. My sister-in-law has done just that. She quit corporate america and came home to her children. She is now working part time as a nanny as well as working on her own home-based business called, Amelia’s Aprons.
I absolutely love the Edwardian Apron. She uses Jennie Chancey’s Edwardian Apron pattern. Here is a link to the apron that I have. This is my new favorite. She has just posted new aprons for May.
We also have her little girl’s apron (the adjustable one) and crayon aprons— great!

    Hello, I just found your blog and love it. I am a home-schooling mom and enjoy sites such as yours. I hope you don’t mind if I visit often! I am wondering where you got the skirt you are wearing in this picture. Did you use a pattern? I’d love to make one. God bless you and your lovely family.

    Oh that’s really cool. I’m impressed with your SIL. That’s neat. I love the Edwardian Apron. It’s very feminine and practical at the same time. I love the Regency Apron’s too. She’s doing a great job with her sewing!

    The skirt I am wearing is from April Cornell. I bought it at the April Cornell outlet in Memphis for $10. It is a great skirt…

    Wish we had April Cornell in Canada. I’ll keep an eye out for a good pattern and fabric.

    Ebay has tons of April Cornell things…especially since I heard they were closing their doors??? You might check there?
    Otherwise, the skirt is a simple skirt to make. It does have a small zipper in the back, also a tie front.
    I also have some others that are elastic waist, but I prefer the tie waist with babies and toddlers–I want to make sure it stays on me 😉

    ooooooooooooohhhhhhhhh…..I’m almost drooling over your apron! I find myself wearing my “Starbucks” apron a lot more than I planned on – lol
    Yours is much more feminine 🙂

    ps – Ethan has the cutest little apron for arts and crafts…it has tractors & trucks all over it – I had to find the most manly man apron available 😉
    It’s PERFECT for fingerpainting with pudding…of course, so is stripping him down to his diaper…but this way isn’t as chilly for the little guy!
