From Shirt to Apron...

Yesterday my sister and I spent the day together...shopping...
then she made a delicious lunch.
It was quiche...and if you haven't tried pineapple with your quiche...you must!
It is wonderful together!!...
she also had homemade chocolate pie for dessert.

Then we sewed....
she had found a project on Pinterest last fall ....making an apron from a man's dress shirt....
I  found this bright shirt at Goodwill in AZ....
But if you have old ones...it is a good way to put them to use!
 Here we are with our new aprons!...They go together very quickly!
Here are the instructions for the apron.
 I did change one thing. For the armholes, as they are cut on the bias...I sewed twill tape on before hemming to keep them from stretching!


  1. What a fabulous idea! I need to raid a closet that I know......

  2. Welcome BEV!!!
    Goodies for your lunch.
