Mary Mulari Apron Pattern Giveaway

It's time for another GIVEAWAY! This time, I have the perfect apron pattern for your vintage linens! THE Mary Mulari is giving away her BEST-selling apron pattern to one lucky participant. Look how cute:



Description below from Mary's Site:

Church Ladies' Apron pattern

This apron pattern was inspired by a vintage 1950's apron with bias tape wrapped edges, a tiny pocket, and a single layer of fabric. The apron was a style commonly worn by ladies serving food in church basements. This pattern updates the style and adds modern, common sense details like double or single pockets sewn at a slant so it's easy to get your hands inside and a neck yoke that can be adjusted for individual fit.The apron is reversible so one yard of fabric is required for each side. Decorate the apron front or pockets with machine embroidery, sew a Velcro® closure for an opening in the neck yoke to avoid ruining your hairdo, or mix and match fabrics so that all sections of the apron feature different prints. There's lots of possibilities for this pattern! Make one for yourself and for gifts too.

This pattern honors women everywhere who prepare and serve food in church basements and fellowship halls. Special honor to the memory of my mother, Helmi Koski, and the women of St. Mark's Lutheran Church of Palo, MN.


EVERYONE who is a Flirty Apron Swap participant automatically has one chance to win.

  1. I love the cloths pin apron pattern as half aprons are my favorite. I have already posted a sneak peek and with all the activity the blog was pushed down pretty far so look for a Picture of Dilly the Tea Cup Chihuahua modeling a miniature version of the apron made for my swap partner. Shawnee you are right; it is so much fun to see what everyone is doing!

  2. Love the Chatterbox Apron Pattern. Unfortunately I didn't find you until after the apron swap started, but I definitely want to do it next time around!

  3. I love the clothespin apron pattern. The triangles make for an interesting and unique design. At $6 a pattern these are very affordable.

  5. I like the "Clothes Pin" Apron pattern, both the full & half apron.
    I have a "Solar Dryer" (clothes line) and I do have clothes pin bag, but I am seriously thinking I need to make Mary's clothes pin apron....too cute!

  7. Gosh! What a hard decision! ONE of my favs was the Chatterbox...I loved them all, though, but I especially loved the umbrella hem! Great prices, too!

  10. add me in, Shawnee! I'm ordering the poncho pattern-I've made "quillows" for people but the poncho is much more versatile- and will put her link on my blog (now that I know how!) Chanukah gifts, here I come!!

    My sneak preview went up a few days ago, and I think I fulfilled all the qualifications for lots of entires.

    and it was so cool to win the fat quarter give-away, I have a great pattern for totes that I'll be using them for.

  12. I love the Church apron the best :) Followed closely by the Clothespin :) I am yet to actually make an apron but have an obsession with them. I have posted about it on my blog (http://pobiesproductions.blogspot.com/2009/04/apron-obesssion.html)

  15. I still hang my laundry to dry. My favorite is the clothes pin apron. I could really use one to help with my laundry.

  16. I LOVE the clothespin apron! I like that you can use many different fabrics within one apron!

  17. The wrap-front apron! That is so clever and such a cute design! I also love that all her apron patterns are so affordable. I have a hard time paying $15 for a pattern and then still needing to buy fabric and embellishments. This lady wants to accommodate the thrifty seamstress!

  18. I love all of the aprons (of course!!!) but would choose the Newfangled Reversible Aprons if I bought one today. Which...I may do anyway.

  21. The clothespin apron is great! I'm not a participant in the apron swap, but now that I saw this pattern I'm thinking it might be fun to get the pattern and give it a try in the future!!! Thanks!

  22. I can't pick just one apron! I like the "No Stings," the "Chatter Box," the "Church Ladies," and the "Wrap Front" aprons. Well, I like others of hers as well, but thought I should try to narrow it down a little!

  23. I am so an apron girl, but I have to tell you that your tote bags were irresistible. Literally, because I ordered one of the patterns!
