aprons and oven mitts

December 11th, 2007

I am halfway through this handmade holiday thing–making everyone’s gift is a lot of work.  Thankfully I have a fantastic husband who lets me hide in my studio and sew for hours.  I even got myself to the post office Monday morning before it opened (there was already a line!) and a bunch of presents are on their way! The apron above is from Denyse Schmidt’s book and has an oven mitt to match. I made a few of these set for a few sets of people–aprons for the girls and oven mitts for the boys.  I think an oven mitt makes a fine man gift. I only have a few boys on my christmas list, but I have some crafty man gifts up my sleeve, which really I should be making now that I think about it…

    Your apron is so beautiful! I love your fabric choices, simply perfect! I’ve solved the handmade gift issue by buying most of my gifts from other crafters… The ones I AM going to make myself I have not started with yet of course :)

    I did give aprons to men too. Of course with a manly pocket and huge manly wooden spoons in it. They might not know what to cook… but surely they can stir??
