Christmas Aprons

With only a week until we leave for England, I've been trying to finish up my share of the linen Nisse aprons for the Christmas kitchen. The cook's little helpers will wear them over the holiday season, and then, after Christmas, the three best workers will get to keep one.

Here is the first finished apron, which features little a Nisse boy and his piggy. The designs by Danish company Maileg were used for inspiration.

In keeping with the Christmas spirit: 'God Jul' ('Happy Christmas' in Danish), and the year, to celebrate the first Christmas at my parents' new house in England.

Here is one of the aprons my Mum is sewing up -- a Nisse girl with her baking tray full of pepperkaker!

Let's hope the aprons get put to good use, and there's plenty of Christmas baking this year!

Delightful! love how the red and black stitches stand out so well on the white pinnies. Look forward to putting one on!

very pretty, redwork is a kind of technique that I love very much, especially around Christmas?
