Pair Up! Emmeline Apron (and reminder of machine giveaway at MD!)
Let's start with a pattern, the adorable Emmeline Apron from Sew Liberated.
Ever feel overwhelmed with options? Let's look at a few I put together.
1. The Organic Combo
Straight forward. Clean. Fresh. Happy. These are from Robert Kaufman's more modestly priced organic line.
2. The Sale Combo
I love the challenge of pairing from a limited pool. It keeps your wits about you. Here I played with warm and cool tones to be more dynamic. The two prints are from our sale section and the purple is a Shot Cotton. Good stuffs!
3. The Modern (aka Whimsical, aka You Paired What with What?!) Combo
This one actually turned out to be my favorite. It's bold, for sure, but something unexpected and balanced somehow. I almost used a solid but at the last minute changed my mind for something a little more playful. I tend to play a lot with pattern and color, especially for something lighthearted like an apron. Amy, Hannah and I had fun choosing what would go with the onion print. It's not just anything!
**Also, just a friendly reminder that Modern Domestic is GIVING AWAY a BERNINA 215 sewing machine! This is a summer promotion that ends August 31st. Enter 3 ways--signing up for a class, attending a Friday Night Sewcial, or simple stop by and see what this great machines can offer and test one out. Some of you may have already done some (or all!) of these, but every class taken and every sewcial attended is another ticket in the raffle. There are still some exciting offerings so check them out!
