Aprons ! So Easy To Make Your Own !
Aprons are so handy to use while preparing food as they save your clothes from being ruined from stains from foods like beetroot if you are making a beetroot dip and other food spills in the kitchen.
You only need a metre of fabric to make a great apron . You can make it fancy or plain add pockets
or you can make ruffles around the edges. They can be great with a big pocket on the front which can also be worn when fruit or vegetable harvesting eg pick apples and put in the pocket to be taken inside to make an apple pie or cake ! I don't have an apple tree but it does sound nice. I pick lemons to take inside to make lemon cordial and home made ginger beer and home made salad dressing ! After writing this blog I'm going to cut out and sew a big pocket on the front of my apron ! Look for fabrics when they are on sale, makes the aprons even cheaper. My apron in the photo was made using fabric that cost me $3.50 a metre and 100 % cotton so will wash well ! Happy sewing every one !
