All done! What do you think of this gift idea?



  1. What a lovely idea πŸ™‚ I have friends with Birthdays coming up and these will be perfect πŸ™‚

  2. Cute idea. Gals, just buy an apron at a craft store and go from there.

  3. Wish there had been an adult apron option as well…

  4. think the gift would have been better if the apron was made also. All you would need is a pillow case or a kitchen/hand towel, fold back 2 corners trim and sew a hem. then get some tape or ribbon attach a loop for the head and the ties then you can add iron on things or even jazz it up with some beads from a broken neckless. πŸ™‚ that is what I do
