On a recent thrifting trip with my friend Kathleen, I scored this cutie below for $.99. I hear that question in your voice. You’re wondering why in the world I would want a curtain panel decorated with passe’ sunflowers. Well, because I have a thing for cute kitchy aprons over jeans, that’s why! You might remember these hostess aprons I made out of curtain panels awhile back. I still love them and decided I could use another!
This panel was long enough to create a nice wraparound apron, so I simply threaded a ribbon through the top of the panel, sewed in a “wraparound hole”, and sewed the edges of the ribbon so it won’t unravel. Voila! Cute apron.
This will be my gardening apron. And yes, I realize it will get horribly dirty and not look nearly as cute after gardening, but…it was $.99. If it makes me feel cute while gardening (which I hate to do by the way), then I say it’s worth it!
Oops. No apron in this pic. Taking pics of yourself is hard! My boots look cute here though, don’t they?
This is the back of the apron and there are cute sunflowers on my bum! (Please try to focus on the cute flowers and try to ignore the fact that I’m grabbing, scratching??? my bum here. What in the world?)
So, what do you think? I’m trying to start a new trend of wearing adorable aprons over jeans and this post is in hopes that you’ll join me! Go to your thrift store, find a curtain panel, make it into an apron, and proudly show it off! Or if you can sew like my little sister, you can go the more traditional route and make a REAL apron. But I prefer easy anyday. (Although, I’ll gladly take one of your cute aprons little sis! Hint, hint!)
