I do now, and so does my daughter, after finally utilizing Miss Flibbertigibbit’s apron tutorial. I saw Lorraine’s apron and tutorial a few months ago and printed it out to make “some day”. While going through my husband’s ties and pulling two out for the Goodwill box this past weekend, I decided to use them as the apron ties instead.
I found a pair of jeans of mine that I don’t really care for and cut the back and front to use, keeping the pockets intact. Add in some fabric from my sewing room that I cut with pinking shears to keep me lazy and not have to sew a hem for the ruffles.
I used some owl fabric that I had left over from when I made my daughter a pillow for hers.
I put the ties through the loops and then just sewed the ties in place along each side on both of them.
For mine I used a grey and white striped fabric, also pinked at the bottom.
And there you go! Two aprons from a pair of jeans, two old ties and some fabric in my stash. Cost = $0.00.
Mine will come in handy soon since I will be attending an Annie Sloan workshop. If nothing else, maybe I will look like I know what I’m doing!
