How to Make a Half Apron from Men’s shirt & Giveaway

This week I’m posting a green project how-to!  I wanted to come up with a quick and easy tutorial that any beginner could do.  I looked around the house and from one glance at my closet (where my husband’s clothes take up about 75% of the space) I quickly asked him to give me a few of the long sleeve shirts he no longer wears for whatever reason.  This one apparently had a few snags, stains and a cut on the front pocket so he finally let it go.  I, of course, had to make it very clear it was for a tutorial.  Otherwise, I probably would not have been able to touch it. He doesn’t like to get rid of any clothes.  HA!  I have all kinds of sewing ideas for all that extra fabric… But shhhh… don’t tell my DH.

Here is the super cute and easy half apron.  I added a funky and bright contrasting fabric (because you know how I love that) for some cute pockets.  But you can always use the same shirt or even mix and match the embellishments with a few different shirts.

If you don’t have a husband, boyfriend or other male in your life that you can steal borrow from… no worries! Head on out to a garage sale, local thrift store or check craigslist ads for free bags of clothes people are always giving away.  

 This tutorial also has a giveaway attached! Watch the video for all the details on how you too can enter to win a fabric bundle that I am putting together just for the lucky winner.  This giveaway is open to the whole world, not just my buddies in the U.S. So, head on over to the video and get started!
