i got the inspiration for these aprons at a local boutique, and thought it would be a great inexpensive gift to give the women in my family for christmas. i am also considering doing mini aprons for their daughters also. what could be more darling than a little girl and her mother baking in the kitchen with matching aprons? especially when they are this cute. so if you are looking for a good gift idea for christmas or birthdays, this is a cute idea that any girl would covet! of course this was a secret worth sharing.
what you need:
1/4 yard each, two decorative fabrics of your choice (toile and checkered used here)
1/4 yard of solid white or black fabric to line back
1 package jumbo rick rack (2.5 yards)
total cost= less than $3/apron
unfortunately i don't use patterns, i just draw them out myself and go at it. but you can probably google half apron patterns if you are nervous.
idea from stacy, inspired by holy cow boutique
