What to do with my husband's no-iron cotton shirts once the collars and cuffs are too frayed to wear to work? Make aprons! This is fun and pretty easy. The first one was kind of a pain because you have to make a pattern on the one-inch grid pellon, but once you have the pattern you can use it forever. I had some embroidered dish towels from a consignment shop with rips and stains but the embroidered part was fine, so I used those for pockets which makes them a lot cuter. You can really used your imagination on decorating the aprons. You can download the free pattern from Mary Jane's Farm:
The only thing you will need to buy other than the grid pellon is a package of bias tape.
These are cute! What a neat idea!!!! This is some of the stuff I love! "Refashioning"!
