Christmas Homemade gifts: Child’s apron

As promised I am posting about some of the homemade gifts I made this year for family and friends.  Today I am writing about the aprons I made for my girls who absolutely love cooking with me now.  I first saw some adorable ones in a specialty store for over 20 dollars each, well I knew this was way too much for us so I decided to make some on my own.   So off to Hobby Lobby I went and found adorable child’s aprons just waiting for personalization from me.   I bought two hot pink child’s aprons for 2.99 each and I used my 40% off coupon on one and the total cost was around 5 dollars for both.  Then I had some cute white iron on letters at home and picked out the girls names and ironed them on.  Next I went through my ribbon stash and found some cute zebra print ribbon I’d used some of for another craft a year ago and used permanent fabric glue to attach it to the aprons to embellish it further.  I could have done more, but I loved them just the way they were.  Simple easy, only took about 20 min start to finish and cost 5 dollars as opposed to buying them (without their names on them) for over 40 for both!   Hope this inspires you, happy crafting!
