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

This is the back view of one showing the 
collar and folded under edges.

rich full-flavored indulgence

At my son's house they drink Chock full o' Nuts coffee,
It is the least expensive coffee at their local Price Chopper.

While at the store I thought I would splurge 
and buy Eight O'Clock coffee for them.

With these two kinds of coffee to compare
I knew which one I would like better.

I was wrong . . . 

The clear winner was Chock full o' Nuts.
"Rich full-flavored indulgence" indeed.
