Simple Homemade Gifts: Quick Apron

For my sister’s birthday this year, I quickly sewed up an apron for her, to encourage her in her new role as stay-at-home-mama!

I loosely followed the instructions for the lined half-apron in the free Fave Crafts Sewing Aprons eBook (a downloadable PDF file). I subscribe to their newsletters, which you might have to do to get this book; I’m not sure. I think if you click “close” on the pop-up window, you can skip signing up, and just access the instruction book if you want.

I used some cotton quilting fabrics leftover from making baby supplies last year. (Remember the $1.85 Wet Bag? We still use it for diapers & swimming!) I chose coordinating prints with orange hues, since I know she likes that color; you could obviously choose your favorites. Then I lined the apron and pocket each with unbleached muslin.

The pattern does include some tips for including adorable rick-rack trim on the apron, but I didn’t have any that coordinated with the orange fabrics. (I must have used it on all those travel crayon rolls.)

I put on a large pocket, perfect for stashing clothespins, garden seeds, notes, or baby toys.

An apron is a fabulous beginner sewing project; there are no advanced “sewing techniques” in these patterns! I was able to complete this simple project in a morning of sewing.

I love aprons and wear them all the time. How about YOU?

Maybe toss on your favorite apron, and mix up some natural remedies with my new eBook, “Herbal Nurturing: A Family Healing & Learning Guide (a downloadable PDF file you can read on your computer or print as a “book.”) Or, include some cute little jars of homemade balms/salves from the book, along with a homemade apron for your favorite homemaker!
