High-quality Handmade Linens - for the Chef and the Table
Hello, and welcome to It’s Handmade by Arianne!
The idea for my shop started 15+ years ago when I was working as an engineer and wishing that I could somehow make my love of sewing into more than just a hobby. At the time I had been making beautiful and unique creations out of fabric for my home and found a real satisfaction in it. Fast forward a few years to when I was expecting my oldest son, and I found myself sewing more and more: things for the baby’s room and maternity clothes for me! A few years after that (and another baby boy added to our family!), I had the good luck of finding Etsy. The Etsy marketplace and community has been a Godsend for me!
The products in my shop are those that you use every day - while you are cooking or cleaning, having a meal, or making a quick stop at the market. They are made with high quality designer fabrics and with extreme attention to detail (remember I was an engineer!) to create a beautiful end product. Cooking and cleaning may be mundane, but a cheerful apron can make these tasks a little more enjoyable, right? And, the right table setting can make any weekday meal that much more special.
I opened my shop with only a few aprons for sale, and since then have expanded my offerings to include placemats, cloth napkins, tablecloths, market bags and of course several styles of functional and flattering aprons. My objective is to offer the highest quality handmade linens for the cook and for the table.
I hope that you will find something here that you will love as much as I enjoyed making it for you!

Frequently asked questions
All of my items include sizing and/or dimensions in each listing. For my aprons, the women's dress form that I use in all images is a Women's Standard Size 10/12, which corresponds roughly to a Women's Catalog size 8/10 (bust: 37.5", waist: 27", hip: 38.5"). The Men's Dress Form, which is used to display my Unisex Chef's Aprons, has bust: 39", waist: 34", hip: 40". The child's dress form is a Standard size 6/8 (bust: 27.5, waist: 25", hip: 28.5). You can use these dress form measurements along with the dimensions provided in the apron listing to give you a more accurate idea of how the apron will fit. If you have any questions about the fit, please convo me.
Custom and personalized orders
I have done many custom orders for aprons, tablecloths, placemats, you name it! Some of the products you see listed started as custom orders that I just had to make as permanent offerings in my shop. So, if you see an apron style that you love, but aren't too crazy about the fabric, or if there is an apron fabric that you would just love made into placemats, please convo me. I would love to discuss a custom listing with you!
Also, I can make most of my aprons in a larger or smaller size. So, if you see a style that you love but think that you may need it customized to fit you just right, please convo me!
I charge Sales Tax in Massachusetts.
