Over the weekend I got into some mischief....
I made a Apron from a man's shirt.. a total 'sew-n-go' with no pattern...


I kept the pocket on the one side and added a secrete pocket on the other side.


and yes, as always,, some YOYOs for decoration.

Our Thrift has a 49cent rack,, and that is where I found this shirt.. it had a few stains on it,, but I knew I could work around them..
I found a sweet little flower applique that I stitched on the pocket..

Grace, that apron made from a man's shirt IS the Cat's Meow!! So creative and cute! The darling mug rug your neighbor made is adorable as well. I love how it is reversible too. Lucky you to receive this cutie to enjoy!

Grace your apron turned out nice! I've made three from men's shirts...all for the grand daughters. The first one for Had's birthday made from her Bapa's old shirt. Then I made two from their daddy's shirt. Two had the neck of the shirt, buttons etc. The third one was made from the back of his shirt, but it had a bib too.

You are blessed to have such a crafty neighbor. And I am blessed to have you. I love to receive something that someone else has made. To me when I make or receive something home made I think of the time, the patience, the love that went into the preperation, and I am so grateful.

I should cut the buttons off my husband's shirts. He's having a hard time buttoning them with his arthritic hands. That'll
solve the problem! I wonder if he'd notice!LoL!
