Last Christmas my step-dad gave me a bunch of old shirts and pants he didn’t wear anymore. His intent was for me to make up a bunch of shirts and other items for my son like the Rehashed Daddy Shirt.
Some of the shirts however just don’t fit with any of our styles; myself, my son or my husband. So I stored them under my sewing desk so they can await a new purpose in their lives. Just like people some fabric simply takes longer to find its purpose than others.
Nearly a year after being gifted with all this fabric one shirt at least (happily?) found a new purpose.
One of my friends had posted a link they thought was neat from pinterest to their FB page. It was a men’s shirt turned into an apron. Immediately I knew the shirt that wanted to become this apron. Admittedly it’s a thinner than an apron should be and by being mostly white it’s also a stain magnet.
It’ll be good for casual cooking if not for anything high stain. Using the directions from Gabriel’s Good Tidings I was able to take this shirt:
and make it into this:
Okay so I should have ironed it before sewing but still it makes those sweaty PT’s look a whole lot better. 😉
