By Florence, Flossie Teacakes

Florence made this apron with Kaffe Fassett fabric for the main section and Heather Bailey Freshcut for the trims. It’s for her 79-year-old grandmother and she deviated just slightly from a pattern she’s come to love. Learn more on Florence’s blog, Flossie Teacakes, and see what else Florence is up to for holiday gift giving. Are you inspired to make a few yourself now? Don’t miss our Apron tutorials.

Noah writes about her family’s holiday baking tradition on her blog, The Life of a SAHM, and shares lots of cookie recipes. Included in the recipes is one for Holiday Gingerpersons, seen in Noah’s picture here. She’s hoping that as her two young children grow they’ll be able to help with holiday cookies, giving the gingerpersons eyes and buttons and the like!
