Christmas Aprons

Aprons for special occasions are so fun to have.
At Purple Chocolat Home we have been having
a great time creating fun combinations of Christmas
fabrics while making holiday aprons.

Joni at Red Couch Recipes (my fun sister) asked
if I would be willing to make a Christmas apron
for her to use as a giveaway.  My first thought was
who has time to make an apron right now!

Being the loving sister I am (and someone who has
a hard time saying no) I got started with the above
apron for Joni's holiday giveaway.  (Yes,
one of her lucky followers and hopefully my
follower too will receive this fun apron that my
daughter is modeling.)  This apron is made entirely
from Moda fabrics, mostly by designer Kate Spain.

Not only did I carve out time to make one for
Red Couch Recipes, my daughter and I have
made 5 more and have fabric for even more -
we keep making lists of who we think would
love one.

Notice this one with the peppermint candies and red
sheer fabric ruffles.  I love this one.

My daughter found this border print at JoAnns
and Wal Mart and made a mother/daughter set
that they will auction off at a church function to
raise money for those in need this Christmas.
(I thought that was a wonderful idea.)

We both fell in love with it and have made one for
ourselves, that is if I don't give it away before I get to use it.

Again, I love the sheer with the candy canes.

For a tutorial on making these fun aprons

Watch Joni's blog to see when she begins
her giveaway.  I can't wait to see who wins it.

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. Amazing!! I bought 3! One for a friend in for my daughter who is hosting Christmas eve and one for my sweet neighbour for Christmas..Yours are nicer! But I could not resist these when I saw them.. a bit like yours just not as cute..
    You are so creative!

  2. so cute and so original! I have a new Mrs. Santa apron to don over tell you the truth I don't have a waist anymore so it's not gonna be pretty!

  3. Oh how fun, this is just wonderful. Love all the fabrics. What a creative idea.
    Thanks so much for your gracious comments on my post. Also, you asked what HL is. I just abbreviated Hobby Lobby. I hope you have one near you, they are the most fun stores. Just full of anything and everything you could ever want and super prices. Hugs, Marty

  8. How does one make your list? Ha Ha, it really is adorable and way too cute to wear if you prepare food the way I do. This is a "hostess apron." to wear at the table, a perfectly giftable treat. No wonder your list keeps growing.

    I love too that you've got a mom-daughter creation party going on. Thanks for sharing your cute idea and your talents!
