Simple Handmade Gifts – Placemat Aprons

A few months ago I bought some vintage placemats because they were just, cute. As I carried them up to the register I folded them in half, making it easy to pile my goods onto the counter. I looked at that semi circle half, then looked over at Lucy and realized that they would make the perfect little kid’s aprons! So here you go, a very simple handmade gift idea.
Turn a placemat (old or new)…..
into an apron!
They’re the perfect size for little girls and boys.
For those girlie girls, use satin for the sash. Add as many or few embellishments as you’d like.
I’m pretty sure they will love it.
And they’re so easy to make, soon you’ll have an entire stack finished, ready to be gifted!
You’ll find the complete tutorial HERE (and in the TUTORIALS link at the top of the blog):
Happy Sewing!
