May and June Apron of the Month- Free Pattern

May and June Apron of the Month!!
 Marie and Meg
I am so excited about these aprons I don't know where to start! These two cuties are "sister" aprons, if you look closely they are both the same pattern except for the shape (pointed or scalloped) and the finishing (ric-rac or bias tape). They are named after real sisters, my great-great Grandmother Marie and her sister Meg! It is always so interesting to see how siblings can be different, yet so alike.
Does one of the aprons looking familiar? I loved the Brown Striped Apron so much, I took the pattern from it!
I have three separate files for the patterns;
 Meg Apron skirt, Marie Apron skirt, and Pocket, Ties and Waistband.

Say Hello to Meg!
She is the bolder, more adventuresome one of the duo. A statement is shouted out with her dramatic points and eye catching ric-rac. But at heart she is still a pretty simple girl. The Meg Apron is so easy to put together! You can whip one up in about an hour. With three panels of the same piece, waistband and ties it is a piece of cake!

Don't you love this fabric? I total agreed with several comments that I needed to make an apron to match my kitchen curtains! (I thought I had posted about them, but apparently not, Opps!) I am now contemplating putting red ric-rac on the curtains! 

And say Hello to Marie!
Marie is a little bit more demur and ladylike with her scalloped hem and traditional contrasting binding. Just as easy to put together and just as easy to love! (It is a good thing I don't have to decide which is my favorite!) She is constructed just like her sister, a three panel skirt, waistband and ties.
Marie Apron was very much inspired by an apron my Great-great-Grandmother is wearing in a photo. It has been on my list for a long time to make. I love how it turned out, just like I imagined!
The fabric is an old vintage feed sack I have been saving, I don't even remember where it came from. But the minute I came across it in my stash I knew it had to be a Marie apron.

I hope you have a lovely summer weekend! We are suppose it get some sun, finally!


  1. Sweet aprons! Love the fabrics for both, but Meg is my favorite.

    1. I love how Meg turned out. The perfect combination of fabric, pattern and ric-rac!

  2. Darling aprons and do I ever love the material.....especially the blue and just screams vintage in my mind...I think I remember fabric similar to that when I was growing up. I think there might have been table cloths made from something like that too. You have curtains made out of it? How sweet! Lovely aprons although I don't wear them so I probably won't make any but I still love to look!

  3. Love your clothesline photo!!! I like Meg, but Marie is my favorite. Unfortunately, I need a full apron when I cook. I can't tell you how many shirts I've ruined with splatters of olive oil. Now I always wear a full apron in the kitchen.

  4. Hey, Heide! I just sent you an email to see if you're getting mine, yet. Love these aprons--I really do-- and plan to copy them for a project I'm working on for the farm. I'll also be posting them on Pinterest and the Duncan Farmstead Facebook page! They're simple and sweet and just what I've been looking for. You always come through!
