Hi! My name is Joyce Minnis and I am a pattern designer. I make garments and aprons from charm packs and panels. I have been sewing for 55 plus years.
I am showing a Christmas Apron I made from a panel. They are fun to make and really different because the unique panel you choose makes every apron different. You will want to make more than one!
I love all things fabric and quilting related. Charm packs are my favorite and I love to collect those. I make aprons and jackets from charm packs and panels. I sell my patterns wholesale. They are available to purchase online at Shabby Fabrics, Fields Fabrics, Quilting Necessities on Etsy, and just recently Annie’s Catalog.
I love Nancy’s Notions and have a few books, that are treasures of mine, signed by Nancy Zieman. I have included pictures of my aprons for different seasons.
I just created The Charming Angel Pattern and it has been very popular.
For the Christmas apron, used the Snowman & Cottage panel from Timeless Treasures. I bought it on MSQC.
Thanks for featuring my aprons this week! Merry Christmas!
