Make It Yourself // Embroidered Magnolia Apron
When I teach my painting workshops, each of my students gets an apron embroidered with their name on it. I used to spend $12 on each apron to have them embroidered. Since I taught 12 – 14 workshops a year, I finally figured out that it would be much cheaper if I embroidered them myself.
So I did some shopping and bought the Brother PE-770 machine. I have had it for six years and I absolutely love it. It only takes about five minutes to embroider an apron.
I have a lot of painting aprons (which are covered in paint) but needed an apron for cooking and crafting. Earlier this year when I was in Waco, I bought these iron on patches at the Magnolia Market. They cost $4.00 each but were on sale at 40% off.
I buy my aprons at a Restaurant Supply store. I love them because they are longer than most, have an adjustable neck strap and have two large pockets in front. Plus they cost about $6.00 each. These ones are similar and from Target, but more expensive.
I decided to embroider my name on the front first.
And then I ironed on the Magnolia patch.
Since I have extra materials, I would like to offer a giveaway of a personalized Magnolia apron! Enter below!
