Everyone can use a good apron. Even if you already have several, a new one is always special. Matching aprons for couples? Aprons to help your favorite crafter or Laundry King/Queen with their “work?” Little aprons for the youngest cooks in the family? Add a cookbook, kitchen or craft tools, some homemade jam, or special seasonings and you have a lovely, thoughtful gift. Here are some of our favorite apron tutorials so you can get started working on your gift list right now!
Half Apron
Crystal from The Longest Year made this half apron with a matching oven mitt for her Nana: Half Apron Tutorial. Crystal adds, “I also think aprons (simple or complex) make a great ‘sewing circle’ project among girlfriends. My military- spouse friends and I used to get together for the occasional girls’ night while our husbands were deployed and we’d commiserate about the war while we sewed aprons as gifts.”
Dishtowel Apron
Turn your favorite dishtowel into an apron for a child with Randi’s Dishtowel Apron Tutorial via her blog, i have to say…

Autum from Creative Little Daisy wrote this excellent Craft Apron Tutorial, inspired by an apron in a Japanese craft book.
