Aprons




These were fun to make and very well received. These two sweeties love to cook together so I'm sure the aprons will be put to good use.

I used McCall's 5825 for Diedra's and traced a basic butcher's apron for Jamie's. I did my own thing with the pocket trim and did not line the top of the apron as was called for in the pattern. I did a flat felled seam on the seam that joins the top and skirt so there are no raw edges.


I hope your Christmas was full of fun and laughter and the enjoyment of being with people you love!

Great gift.Making a great gift is all about thinking about the recipient and what they like/interests they have and go from there. That's how I tackle buying/making gifts anyway. Have a great day.
