Christmas wouldn’t be complete without Christmas cookies and this sweet apron is perfect for the little taste testers!
An annual tradition for my girls has always been to bake and ice cut sugar cookies for Christmas. Typically, it is an all-day affair with plenty of flower, colored sugar, and icing everywhere. Fortunately, it has continued with the addition of three grandchildren and this year, they will have their very own aprons!
You can use regular fabric or GlitterFlex for the cookie applique. I chose a textured felt. Since it was not a wool or premium felt, I added a layer of ShapeFlex 101 to the back for added stability.
After placement stitches, trim the felt close to the tack-down stitches and continue to embroider.
I also added a heat-away topper to keep decorative accents and face embroidery from sinking into the felt nooks and crannies. It tears away easily but supports thread, allowing better coverage.
I omitted the button stitches, fully intending to add a heart button to the gingerbread boy (and forgot). That’s an easy fix!
