November Apron

The apron(s) for November comes as a mother-daughter pack.  Get ready for help cooking the holiday meals by encouraging a little one to cook with you.

One of my sisters-in-law makes fabric gift bags each Christmas and I repurposed my bag into aprons using the printed fabric.  

Although aprons made like this are usually considered clothespin bags, the big pocket would be great for holding a potholder or the end of a kitchen towel.  I've used this pattern, Simplicity #E2079, several times.  It takes very little fabric and the bias tape binding is the most costly thing about making it, unless you can make your own tape, which I do.

Looking for a simple gift to make for Christmas?  Why not surprise a little granddaughter with her very own apron?



  1. very cute and a nice way to use the gift bag too!

  2. Hello Charlotte! More great aprons that remind me of my Mother! Love your header..

  3. What a great idea for a Christmas gift Charlotte. There are many times I wish I was a seamstress! Hope all is well with you.

  4. I love them! I'm not sure I've seen these, have I? So cute!

  5. These are so cute and you have November aprons finished. Like your idea for repurposing the fabric

  6. Oh I love these. You should make them for Christmas presents. I've never seen any like these before. Hugs, xo

  7. Your aprons are very cute, Charlotte! Any little girl would love to have one, I think. :)

  8. I do like these! And, now that I have a clothes line, I may need a clothespin bag.

  9. Every time I see you wonderful
    I think
    maybe I should get a sewing machine
    can hardly finish what I do now :)

  10. That apron is really cute. Love the colors and fabric too. Nancy

  11. Hey Charlotte, it's me E.C.
    I've opened a new blog. I'm working on a redwork project and I wanted to post about it and about you too.
    I hope you'll come by and visit sometime.
    Thanks so very much for being so talented and inspiring. I'm having so much fun with this project.

    One more thing, I changed my avatar from the heartshape flowers to this quilty one.

  12. Nice Aprons. So cute to have mommy and daughter; matching. Love the snowman!

  13. I love your beautiful November apron. The fabric and pattern are so pretty. You are very talented, Charlotte.
    I hope you and your family have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  14. Oh! I have an apron made just like that!! It was given to me years ago as a birthday gift, made out of blue and white ticking with a clothespin embroidered in the front. And yes, I do use mine as a clothespin bag.
