    Last year I made aprons for all the women in my immediate (daughters) and my Dh's family and sons girlfriend and prior girlfriend.
    Well this year we are having Christmas with my family. I needed to make 8 more aprons for my SIL's and my nieces (except the 3 y/o, I may make a "mini" apron for) I decided to make the aprons early so I could try and sell them at the boutique I was involved in. That way if they sold, I could make a few more for my family and if not..... They're already done for Christmas presents.
    I traded one apron for some earings with my DD#1's MIL (I can't find them at the moment :( )
    I whipped all these aprons up last weekend on Saturday and Sunday and sewed the buttons on on Wednesday

    I love these. I bet they make wonderful gifts. I can think of many people I could make them for. Can you tell me the pattern name so I can purchase it and start making some? I know I won't get them done this year but I can think about starting early and get next year's gift done right? :)
    Thanks. Great work!!!

    I will probably have my daughters help me out. Especially DD#3, she's good at picking things for people and love to do it.

    They are so very cute, love your choice of fabrics. I have made one, but my problem was getting the length of the neck and waist ties. How long did you make your waist tie, mine look like they would go around an elephant!

    Well, since I am the size of an elephant, they do fit me. My daughter can wrap them around and tie in the front!!!! :lol:
    These are basically the width of fabric less a few inches.
    The neck straps range from 21-25" hangs a little low on some but fit me great!
