Christmas aprons


I was lucky enough to finish these two little aprons just in time to give them to Red Chief for Christmas. The number fabric came from my mother-in-law's stash and the red from my mom's. I wouldn't have much cloth without them!

These aprons come from Simplicity 3802. It's a great pattern for a beginning seamstress like me, and I plan to make more, since I need the practice and Red Chief needs the coverage at mealtimes.

  1. Those look cute, I admire anyone who can sew, wish I could! I am sure they will be very much appreciated. Hope you have a lovely day!

  2. They are very nice indeed! I love sewing, too and during the past month, I've seen a couple of aprons on Show and Tell! And I always say to myself that I should make one for myself, too!

    Best wishes from Germany,
    Anita

  3. Beautiful aprons and a welcomed gift to the recipients.....

    Thank you for visiting with me and taking the time to comment....the fabric dipped in liquid starch and applied to any surface works great. I used it several places when we were living in a church pastorium that I couldn't paint....just peel it off and no trace of it left.....Betty

  8. Lovely! I haven't ventured from sewing quilts save for a couple of bears I made for a friend's children. I've been wanting to try my hand at aprons. :)

  10. How nicely done! I hope that is a huge encouragement to do more. It looks like you have a talent. What a good idea for an alternative to a bib, or for projects at the easel.

  14. These look great! Kaia has a few aprons of her own, and she loves to get into my collection of aprons that were my great grandmothers and put them on both of us. I'm glad you found an easy pattern that will be useful.

  15. Cute Aprons! One of DD's presents was a stocked sewing box so she has been using my sewing machine and sewing things.
    She and I are thinking of an apron for her to make soon maybe next week.
    At walmart today waiting for our oil change we browsed the fabric and patterns. I almost left with a load of fabric I had to restain myself big time!
    I haven't had the sewing bug in a long time and I really want to sew something. I used to sew our church clothes, kids shorts, skirts, etc. I love to sew!
