apron shirts

While visiting the kids in British Columbia
I came across a fun sewing project at their local farmer's market.


They are aprons made from thrift store shirts.

I made several for our little ones.



Mine are made from men's small dress shirts
 but a child's large may be better {shorter}



It was fun playing with sleeve pockets 
and transferring labels to the front.



You may find the directions on this blog helpful
if you want to try making some

Here are two photos from Liz's blog showing cutting instructions

collar and folded under edges.

Those are ADORABLE!!! How clever! And your grands are getting so big!!! Love their coloring! So beautiful!!
Hope life is treating you well. We are ready to take on summer here. It is still quite unseasonably cool for here, but I'll take it. I know those triple digits are on their way!!!
Have spent morning talking to my Mama, who is trying to talk me into going to Hawaii with her to meet up with some family friends. I am tempted to go, but so many other obligations make me hesitate. We also have lots of camping plans for our new trailer this summer!
