It's not too early to think about Christmas. After all, the most celebrated event of the year is less than four months away. There is still plenty of time to begin your handmade gifts. And everyone likes to give gifts at Christmas, or whatever Holiday you are celebrating. Children too, enjoy participating in the ritual of exchanging gifts. To see the pleasure on someone's face when they receive your handmade gift is a gift in and of itself. This easy to make apron pattern, from the December 1954 issue of Woman's Day magazine, is fashioned from a checked dish towel and is a quick project for small hands with little sewing experience. It is a seldom seen practice but the habit of mutual exchange of gifts between aunts and nieces should be encouraged. These older role models are pivotal in the development of their young nieces and anything to strengthen that bond should be celebrated. Download the easy to sew pattern instructions HERE.
