Ok, I am all set to go: Christmas sewing project. Won't post too much about it, as some of my blog readers are family members who will be getting said home-sewn gifts. But they all know already that I am sewing aprons.
Have had this plan for sewing gift aprons for many years. Have a unique twist, and a reason these aprons will be loved and cherished. But, why now?

The aprons were an advertising item for a company, so they have a large logo on the front. No problem, I have a solution for that issue. Also, the neck strap and waist ties are a little skimpy. I have a fix for that, too.
|Taking apart the aprons to add personal touches|
Removing the existing pocket and bias-binding straps will allow me to personalize each apron to match the taste and decor of the family member who will be receiving it.

So excited to get going on this! I must finish in a reasonable amount of time, however, because I refuse to be sewing on December 24th. I learned my lesson last year:
no last-minute holiday sewing = less stress and happier me!
