Mixing It Up this Monday!

Hey there you lovely people! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Ok, today I totally stepped out of my "comfort zone" and make my very first apron! I was so totally inspired by THIS APRON that Nana @ My Crafting Channel made from a pair old jeans, I just had to give it a try! I had such fun making this cute little apron from...yep, a pair of old jeans! Yay!
I simply cut the jeans like so and sewed some cute pink buttons on the pockets and white lace trim along the bottom, then ran a wide polka dot print ribbon through the 3 loops and tied it in the back to make my apron "strings" How easy is that!
There is also a quick tutorial on whipping up an apron from a t-shirt! Oh. So. Cool. Check it out HERE
If making an apron appeals to you, here's another incentive--there's a challenge going on right now over at 2 Creative Chicks Blog- challenge #12, Make An Apron, which of course, I'm entering! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! It's the nicest day of the year so far here in Seattle, 63! Here's wishing you a bright and sunny day!!!

That's adorable! I made a no-sew apron out of a tea towel a couple of months ago.

I'm sorry. This just won't work for's TOO cute! I'd be afraid I'd get something on it if I used it! This is so creative and adorable. If I had any sewing talent what-so-ever I'd try making one. Great job!
