My Mom made all us girls aprons for Christmas this year. They were really cute, she made mine out of left over fabric from a dress she made me when I was little. It was a loving yet afordable way to make us all special gifts for Christmas.
My little sister also got a handmade apron as a Shower gift when she got married, It was really cute. I thought it was a great gift idea!
