Hostess gift

I have a couple of days off and I need a hostess gift for a friend I will be visiting tomorrow.
I thought perhaps I could bake something, but she is an amazing cook/baker and she will be cooking for my friend and what to do???

I decided to whip up an apron using some lightweight denim I have an abundance of and I chose a printed fabric to make bias binding for the edges of the pockets.

Just thought I would pop in and share what I am up to....

Hope you have a happy weekend!


  1. a lovely gift. enjoy your holidays.

  2. Hi deanna,

    Thank you. I am listening to Frank Sinatra Christmas songs....more my speed right now. I am over
    hearing all the hippity hoppy new songs ; )
    Happy holidays to you too!

  3. So sweet! I made an apron for a gift this week, too! My mother used to jokingly call them "tacky homemades" but we all knew tht they were the best gifts! (: Happy Weekend!

    1. Hi Gina,

      Ha Ha!
      I have a favorite "go to" pattern that is easy to do, just takes a little time to throw together.
      Since my friend is a baker and is in the kitchen a lot I wanted to make something useful for her.
      I am going to put a Yankee Holiday candle in with those candles!
      Happy weekend to you too! :) xo

  4. Well.... your hostess will be thrilled when she gets that sweet apron! The perfect gift, and just darling!


    1. Hi Dulcy,
      I like useful things and I can imagine her baking and wiping her hands on it lol!
      I will post a picture of the completed apron after she opens it. Thank you.

  5. Love the denim apron and colorful trimming! A great gift for a great cook!
    Love your velvet stitching, too...finally catching up on my favorite blog visits!

  6. Thanks Mary...don't see how you do it all! So much crafty loveliness you create!
