OK...I realize that most people don't consider aprons as part of their wardrobe. However, I do. Let's face it when you get home from work...you're tired...you need to start dinner...no time to change...solution...throw on an apron! Voila..wardrobe.
I can't live without my aprons and have made many utility aprons...some of which you can find in my Etsy and Handmade With Love online stores.
Some ladies have shoe, purse, hat fetishes...mine (please don't tell)is aprons. I love to make them...love to wear them.
I've joined Wardrobe Refashion for the next 2 months and while I've not had time (yet) to participate...I have done some refashioning in the past (yes, with aprons) and here are two I'd like to share with you.
This apron was made from 2 matching placemats found at my local thrift store. Folded one in half and stitched it to the other...made a seam down the middle of the top placemat to make 2 pockets...then sewed on a wide ribbon in contrasting colors for the tie.
This is by far my favorite re-purposed apron. It is made from a pillow case that I found at the same thrift store as the placemats just on a different visit. Front of pillowcase was the "body" of the apron while the opposite side was cut apart and made into the ties.
They both have been sold...I'm very excited about that.
In and Because of HIM,
