Handmade Gifts for Little Girls

Having two boys, I rarely get to make anything pretty. So I was excited to make something  for 2 little girls in my family this year. I decided on matching aprons made from fat quarters of fabric with a ruffle trim, and crocheted hair clips. I didn't use a pattern for the aprons, but Prudent Baby has some cute apron tutorials here. The hair accessories are just little crocheted flowers that are hot glued to a metal clip. These clips can be found at any craft store. Making these little flowers is a great way to use up scraps of yarn in your stash. You could even attach pins to make brooches for hats, scarves, sweaters...etc.
