With the help of my Mum, I made gathered kitchen aprons for my Grandma and a family friend for Christmas. They are made from scraps of fabric leftover from previous projects and I also decorated plain white hand towels in matching fabric to go with them. When I gave my Grandma hers she said she would looks like the ‘hostess with the mostess’, hence their name.
Made from heavy black craft cotton with white polka dots, black cotton drill and black floral cotton.
