If you are a DIY sewer – we want you to get excited! Because we have the perfect project for you: vintage aprons! Even if this is your very first DIY sewing project, you can feel confident, as this is a super beginner friendly one to try.
Most vintage aprons you can make with a yard of fabric, or even less. While aprons may sound super old fashioned, they are incredibly practical, especially if you are cooking for guests who will arrive soon. No one likes to get flour, spices or sauces on their clothing – and then to have to change just before party guests come over. So a DIY apron truly can save the day.
During holiday times, aprons are terrific to have handy too. Don’t think they are “just” for the Fall & Winter holidays such as Thanksgiving & Christmas – if you’re having a fantastic 4th of July BBQ, then we know you’re going to want an apron too.
Lots of these aprons have pockets too, which is simply amazing. No, not those decorative ones – pockets you actually can put things into!
A vintage DIY apron makes a terrific housewarming or holiday gift. So start picking out fabric and plan out your holiday presents now!
Let’s get started! Happy DIY-ing!
