Every year I give the ladies in my husband's family a present made by me. As i live in Italy and most of them are amazing cooks so I decided to make aprons with co-ordinating pot holders. The measurements for the aprons came from the Christmas edition of Cotton time 2009 but I embellished them as I wanted. I used all kinds of different fabrics including many from Ikea which lend themselves to this kind of thing very well. More aprons on flickr.
