Quick to make gift: Four Corners Apron! Fast, easy and lovely to look at. This one will be a hit with anyone you give it to. Although it's a 'buy it' on the link - you only have to look at the picture to see how easy this one would be to make - even without a pattern.
Make your own Apron Party. Even works for little girls. Start with the plain white ones from Hobby Lobby and let the little girls sew on the pre-hemed ruffles...its just a straight line from there! They can add flower pins or iron-ons to the top.
