Here we are on the other side of Turkey Day! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! After a long day of food preparation, I’m in the mindset to talk about aprons for today’s Holiday Hints for Handmade Gifts. I admit, I don’t wear aprons enough but I’m always happy about it when I remember to tie one on.
The Striped Café Apron (pg 14 of Sewing Green) is made from a men’s dress shirt. Certain components, such as the hem, placket, pocket, etc. are strategically kept intact so much of the precise sewing is already done for you. Plus it’s a great way to reuse something that’s worn out its original purpose!
And finally, in Warm Fuzzies you’ll find this craft apron, with an appliquéd owl to keep an eye on your scissors and other crafting tools.
Hope these Holiday Hints are helping you with your holiday gift planning. Come back next week for more ideas!
