T-shirt Apron

14 posts in this topic

I'm still sitting here in the rv park with too much time on my hands. This is the latest project which I did in a couple of hours this morning. I just used an old t-shirt!

Here is the link if anyone is interested.

Now to see if I can get a photo up! Yay! It worked!

Miki, I love the aprons. I am going to try my hand at them. Thanks for the idea. This looks like it could be a stress relieving project. (By the way, how is the new book coming? I am anxiously awaiting.)

I like to take a piece of cotton fabric and sew to the bottom of t shirts for light weight summer dresses. You just cut a rectangle long enough to make your dress as long as you want and a little wider than the measured t shirt at the hem. Sew your rectangle into a tube and hem the bottom edge. Then overlap the t shirt hem at the top and sew around it twice on the machine. Very quick, easy and comfortable.

Thanks you all!!! I am always into easy!

Martha, what book? I hope you are thinking of TheMartianChick! Or did I talk in my sleep?! :sHa_sarcasticlol:

 

CGA, I love the idea for the dress! I just went to a thrift shop today and found some material for a nightgown and to make a chicken doorstop. I will post photos and link when I finish it--the doorstop, that is! The nightgown will be cut by the one I have now. Six seams total!

 

 

Then I will try more of the t-shirt aprons! I think I will have an assortment of items to sell at the Farmers Market.

Miki, you are right. Maybe that is a hint for you to start writing stories since you are deversified in your areas of talents.

 

CGA, when my oldest granddaughter was little she only wore dresses. I made them out of tee shirts and plaid material for the skirt. She loved them. Funny, though I never though of using a tee shirt with a design on it, but did use iron on decals or cut things out of same skirt material and zigzaged around it. I also brought chambray shirts and did the same thing for my sons and their friends. They wore them as light weight jackets.

 

Miki, aprons are also on my list now. I used to sew all of the time but stopped when we moved.

 

 

(Now Martin Chick, How is the book coming? I need to reread yours and write down suggestions of how to do things, too.)

Very cute apron, Miki! I especially like the choice of t-shirt. I will keep the idea in mind in case I ever need to make one. (Of course, I already have a mighty fine apron that was made by Violet from the Mrs. Survival forums....)

 

The writing is coming along. I spent the morning doing a number of outdoor chores so this afternoon will be spent writing.

If you are buying used t shirts cheap, you can cut one off just below the armholes and sew it to the bottom of another one and not worry about finding material to put on the bottom. I've done that and they are easy and comfy.
