With nothing more than a needle, a few pieces of ribbon, some thread and four buttons, you can turn an old apron into a convertible one, freeing up your hands to cut flowers and prune. It also has a convenient pocket to stash small tools and trimmings.
- Kitchen apron
- Ribbon or twill tape
- 4 large buttons
- Sewing needle
1. Fold up the bottom of the apron to make a 10-inch-deep pocket.
2. Cut four lengths of ribbon or twill tape.
3. Fold them in half and stitch the loose ends to the edge of the apron, as shown, to make the loops.
4. Position 4 large buttons to line up with the loops and sew them on.
