Outpouring of Aprons!
This Christmas I made aprons for all the ladies in the family (including the littlest one.) One of the ladies’ husbands (not pictured) remarked, “To give my wife an apron is like giving a blind man a telescope!” I take it she doesn’t cook much.
Each apron has a bar towel on the front so you can wipe your hands as you go. I ended up sewing twenty-two. It is kind-of habit forming, once you get started.
One of my granddaughters said I should sell them on Etsy. I told her, “You do it. I’ll watch.”
I’ll have to choose something different to make for Christmas next year. Right now, I think I’ll sit and dream on it a while. We ended up with forty for Christmas dinner. All but one granddaughter and grandson-in-law were with us. What a blessing!

Merry “CHRIST”mas sweet friend. Love the aprons! 40 for dinner! How do you manage that??
Just quadruple the recipes!
I did the same for my family making 35 on my grandmother’s treadle machine. It was a fun project that connects our family and honors my grandmother who wore an apron every day. I’m sure your family will treasure theirs.
You must have gotten your exercise doing all that on a treadle machine! I don’t usually wear an apron, but with a bar towel on the front it will sure come in handy!
