What do you get when you combine an old Ikea pillowcase, a sewing machine, some ribbon, and a few hours of free time?
An apron for the fashion-savvy housewife! I call this number “Hipster Mod for the Kitchen Broad.” Cook with flair! Cook with attitude!
The project took about two hours from start to finish, and I was quite pleased with the result. So pleased, in fact, that I wore it around the house for a few hours. And I wasn’t even cooking. The apron joins my ever-growing collection of reconstructed sewing projects – like this skirt-turned-top, this long-sleeved-shirt-turned-halter-top and this dish-towel-turned-hand-bag.
I would have posted some instructions, but I actually made it up as I went. Because, quite frankly, working with patterns annoys me. Seriously, one can handle only so much cutting and pinning and measuring before one’s head explodes.
Also, I still have the other half of the pillowcase, so I might make another apron at some point in the near future. Could a contest giveaway on the blog be coming in the near future??? Quite possibly!
Farewell until next time, dear readers. I’m going to go prance around in my apron some more.
