emmeline...why do you intimidate me?

I've got all the fabric and thread ready. I've read (and re-read) the instructions.

So why am I having such a hard time starting my Emmeline apron? I'm intimidated by this project! There are a couple of reasons I think I feel this way. 1. The floral pattern is a vintage fabric and I love it. I only have just a little more than enough of it so I can't make any mistakes (stress!!!). 2. The apron is so beautiful so it has to be hard to make. I just need to suck it up and start cutting! I only have 10 more days left for the sew-along!

Aren't these little coin purses lovely? I have used these little coin purses off and on since I picked them up at estate sales a couple of years ago. They are super handy to have in your purse for coins or mints.

You can find them now in the shop.

Have a great day tomorrow everyone!

good news - the deadline had been moved to june 15th ... and the first time I made the apron I did the same thing - hesitated - but it turned out great! go for it - it's not as bad as it seems!

I feel the same way - except I'm not using special vintage fabrics. I'm using light puckery summer fabrics. I can't wait to see yours, and I'm working on mine today... good luck!

I get this way about so many projects, esp with favorite fabrics. Any chance you can do one up in a less precious fabric first?? Good luck!
