That's a great idea! I wear aprons all the time and have been lucky to have friends that have given me several over the years-like you tho, I don't wear half aprons. I'm rather short and seem to get more on the top part of me than the bottom! I can't wait to dig my stash out now and give this a whirl!


I still have the little red polka dot apron my mom made me to help her in the kitchen when I was two or three. She used white rick rack to edge the apron and added three off center rick rack stripes. It is tiny! I wish I had a full-size version.


Great looking apron Stefanie! Love how you altered the shirt to make the top so cute! Thanks for the book review, too!

I found a great looking summer dress to convert into an apron, just by opening up the back, it already has the ties and the front really looks like an apron already!

Hooray for aprons!

I remember the first thing we ever made in sewing class.
A gingham apron.
Mine was yellow with ric rac trim.
We also had to embroider our names on them!
I should wear an apron more often, I quite often spill on me but usually the top


A great example of an Eco garment, keeping two thinks our of the landfill and inspiring us all. Old shirts have such a wonderful amount of fabric. I have a stash,as yet unused.


What a great idea. I have aprons hanging all over my kitchen. Can never have too many as far as I am concerned.

I love vintage aprons, cute idea with the shirt for the top of the apron. Just made aprons for the crew at my church that cooks for Wed nite meals, we are so cute in our matching aprons


I still have the first apron I made in school. It was made out of gingham with cross stitch added.

I love aprons and how popular they have become. I really like the idea of using a blouse for the top of a half apron! I make denim aprons from recycled jeans and handpaint them with animals and kitchen designs.
