homemade gifts: half aprons





i made these little aprons for my wonderful co-workers. i love working with fabric because you can tailor the same design for different personalities. i thought so much about the woman who would be wearing the apron. i adapted the pattern from this book by lining the apron, thus making it reversible. i love things that are reversible and i wanted them all to look festive without being overtly christmasy. i gave them to the girls last night at our christmas dinner at abattoir. let me recommend the ginger smash for starts and then the hummus and then the risotto and then the maple caramel creme something with bacon cookies. that's right. bacon cookies. i may or may not have had to take a pepto last night. my stomach didn't know how to handle all of that awesomeness!

i'm so excited to meet one of my best friend's brand new baby son today and to wrap up some homemade treats for my neighbors. as matilda would say..."christmas. is coming."
