I find myself wearing aprons more and more these days. I recently made one from a towel and some material. It’s a project that has been crossed off my winter crafting list. The towel cost $4 from Walmart and the material was just a couple of dollars from Fabricland. I have enough material left over to use on another project … perhaps another apron, or a cloth bag.
First I traced a favourite apron which eliminated the need to have a pattern. That’s a cheap trick isn’t it? or is it a thrifty trick? I cut strips of material to make the binding for the edges of the towel that got cut away. .
After the edging I added a good sized pocket. It fits great, washes up a treat, and sure saves my clothes from getting dirty. And my hands are always dry as I can dry them off in no time.
Do you wear an apron? They really are becoming a must have item for the kitchen as I see all sorts of them for sale in the stores now.
I love this towel apron as I always have something to dry my hands off and the pocket can hold odds and ends.
This wasn’t my first attempt at an apron. Last year I used the same method and made a garden apron out of an old skirt. I love recycling items into new things.
It sure helped keep me clean when I was doing all those garden projects. This one has speckles of paint from various projects, pockets full of garden tags, markers, snippers and much more.
