denim apronHere at MOTHER EARTH NEWS, we are so fortunate to have readers who are innovative and talented, and who share their projects and ideas with us. You see many of them in the "Country Lore" section of the magazine. Here is one that is just right to start off the holiday gift-giving season:

“This denim apron was inspired by one in your Dec.2008/Jan.2009 issue. My relatives decided to exchange repurposed gifts this year, and this was mine. I call it the Daisy Duke design. 

Thanks for all your great ideas.”
