Sweet Aprons {Gift Finishes!}

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


I love giving handmade gifts!  I made these aprons for my Mom and my three sisters and was able to gift them in person when I was in Yuma last month.  It was so nice to be all together with my parents and my sisters and brother and some spouses for a few days of my three-week vacation.



One of my sisters cannot have stand to have anything around her neck, so her apron style is different than the others {top left}.  It's the Scalloped Apron by The Paisley Pincushion.  I remember the older women wearing this style when I was young, and I think it's still quite cute.  This apron is reversible with bicycles and pink with red dots.

The other three aprons are made from The Sassy Little Apron pattern which claims to be a slimming design, and it's so true!!  My local quilt shop had samples made up, and I tried one on and lost 10 pounds, so I had to buy the pattern!  It's that sassy little ruffle, I tell you!  One apron is owls and red with aqua dots, another is purple hydrangeas, and the third one is a light yellow with flowers.  Some of the buttons are antiques from my grandmother's collection.


ALL Class Collections are on sale this weekend at Craftsy!  You will save 50% or more on all bundles of Craftsy classes in all categories!  Pre-Cut Piecing Made Simple and Playful Piecing Techniques by Camille Roskelley are two of my favorite Craftsy quilting classes, and they are bundled together for a special deal this weekend, along with over 140 other Class Collections!  Gift yourself a breath of spring and don't miss this sale!

Such great fabrics you chose for the aprons! I think I like the first style. But I don't wear aprons, just my stained old clothes. Maybe when the kids get bigger, I won't get so many stains!

Love the aprons!! I've been wanting to make one for myself for months now... Maybe one day I'll get my act together and make one!

I tend to make very plain, utilitarian aprons--but I love these. I must branch out. :)
