Apron Obsession I think

I like this apron
while I would probably be able to afford a few from Fog Linen, I thought it would be 
more fun to make a few of my own
 using deconstructed clothes

At my thrift store I purchased 
a Leather skirt for $10.00 
and
2.5 yards of Grey pin-stripe mens-wear wool for $2.50

Also a cotton white and blue striped jumper for $3.50

This week, post  flu, I am hitting the ground running - here are a few pics
Upper Left- Leather skirt
Bottom Right- the pieces of leather I have remaining



Then

Navy blue jean material at a close-out price 2 years ago. 



I am loving this mix of leather and pin-stripe

  3. I love this!!! I agree with Ronnie - the leather/pinstripe is wonderful...but so are the others. So...how easy (if it was) was this to do? That's just the kind of apron I need.

    2. Seriously...how'd you do this? I just ordered a "pinney" from South Street Linen that is the same basic design.

      It's linen and meant to be a jumper of sorts. Thought it would look cute with a t-shirt and leggings.

  6. The richness of the fabric choices go well with the luscious rug in your new space.
