Celebrate the Holidays with DIY Aprons

Aprons have been used to tie on a little extra protection in the kitchen for generations, and wearing a special apron can be a small but fun way to celebrate a special occasion. Not to mention that handmade aprons make fantastic holiday gifts! We’ve gathered together some of our favorite free apron projects perfect for the holidays and gifting. If you love making aprons like we do, and want to bring a little joy to someone in need this November, then we’d love to introduce you to National Tie One On Day 2014, proudly sponsored by BERNINA. There are three simple steps to sharing through National Tie One On Day: Wrap a loaf of bread or other homemade treat in an apron and tuck in a sweet note. Then tie one on – an apron, of course! – and deliver the wrapped bundle to someone…a neighbor, friend or charity…without your bounty and in need of physical or spiritual sustenance, a bit of recognition or just a kind word. Be sure also to visit the NTOOD website to enter in the many great giveaways!
