A Quick Gift...again

This is a repeat of an oldie but goodie. About three years ago I made this same apron for my middle daughter when she hosted Thanksgiving. This year we were visiting the newlyweds who decided to host their first Thanksgiving. In a moment of clarity of recall I remembered this quick "Apron in an hour". It took a few more minutes this time because I had to fudge a bit with fabrics.

I used the same fabrics used for the bridesmaid's luggage tags. Since I had cut into the half yard cuts I had bought for the tags I needed to make the strip along the bottom deeper to give the apron adequate length as well as make the waistband a tad more narrow. That took some cipherin' which in turn took me a few minutes longer to complete the task. Older daughter had commented that the original apron ties could use to be a tad longer so I made that adjustment as well.

All in all if you need a quick inexpensive gift, again I suggest this quick apron. It is great for a new bride or a not so new bride that wants something fresh in the kitchen. It may have taken me a few more minutes than a hour but not too many more. Hmmm, I may have to make one now for oldest daughter. Act surprised!

For my stateside readers, I hope your Thanksgiving holiday was filled with blessings and grace. Now onto the Christmas season! I hope you have something fun planned to stitch for the holidays. My mind is swirling with all kind of ideas. Let me be the first to wish you a...


  1. Well aren't you just the sweetest... that is adorable, almost too cute to get dirty!
