This feastive season I hope to make many of our Christmas gifts.
I started with this simple apron ~
It was store bought and fairly cheap, much cheaper than buying the material and clasp at the fabric store, but the fabric and sewing was very strong, neat and durable.
With some scraps of co-ordinating fabric, some re-cycled lace and a piece of ribbon, I added the decorative patchwork over the exsisting apron pocket and bib.
And this is the finished apron!
Viola! A pretty, original apron for a sweet friend who spends most her life in her kitchen cooking, baking and preserving for her large family.
Pop over to my Project Pages and read the full tutorial and see the photos there.
I’m off to whip up some more bags, aprons, felt toys and home preserves and natural bath products for gifts!
