Need To Make A Christmas Gift, Part 2 - Aprons

Over the past couple of weeks, I sewed up two aprons. They are to be part of gift baskets for a silent auction at my sorority's Founders' Day celebration, but aprons make good holiday gifts too. Think Christmas or novelty fabrics. I recently saw some licensed Girl Scout fabric with Thin Mint cookies that would make a great apron for a troop leader.

First is this bib-style apron, trimmed with wide ric rac. I used a pattern called Flirty Skirty by Threaded Pear, but it seems to be out-of-print.

This half apron was very easy. The top of the pocket and the outer edges are bound like a quilt.

The pattern came from this book, A Is For Apron, which has lots of great aprons to make. The only hitch is that the pattern pieces are printed in miniature and you have to enlarge them.

Thank you, Miss Main Street, for modeling!
