Pattern Description:

Chicken scratch embroidery on gingham was a favorite stitchery style in the 1930-1950s---the heyday of apron making. My grandma made lots of these aprons, but my favorite is this simple holiday style with cross-stitched trees and little bows with jingle bells. It takes only 1-1/4 yards of fabric, the sewing is easy, the embroidery is simple cross stitching, and it's easy enough for any beginner. The rickrack is "embroidered" onto the apron by hand with contrasting embroidery floss. The style is just like the basic half-apron I made when learning to sew in 4-H--an easy one to embellish for other seasons and reasons.

Bonus: I"ve included the recipe for my favorite frosted sugar cookies!
