    More Thrift Store Recycle Projects

    I made these aprons from a shirt and a dress which were given to me by a lady who is closing her thrift store. I have several to make to take to a craft show in April. I think the white one needs some trim around the collar, you think? I have more styles I am going to try.

    Neat! I agree with putting a bit more trim on the collar of the white one. Maybe a colourful bowtie? You are really creative.

    Fun! I would trip the collar with a bit of ribbon.

    You do such great work. I especially like the asian inspired one.

    I've been making aprons too, but I'm not as creative as you. Good job!!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Those are so neat! I love the first one, such pretty fabric and design. And the shirt apron is great too--saw some directions in a couple of blogs and want to try one.
