Shirt to Apron #2

Here's the second apron I made. I used a L/XL ladies shirt for this one. It's for my youngest daughter. I'm extremely happy with the way it turned out. Blue and yellow are my two favorite colors anyway.

Here is the shirt from the thrift store. I paid $1.50 for it.

WENDELL UPDATE: He's doing great. He wants an apron too. Any guesses what he wants on the fabric?

  2. I pinned that idea too- for Birdie. She hasn't tried it yet but I'm going to send her here to look at yours! They turned out fantastic! Deanie loves the yellow and blue combination too! As do I. I'm guessing that the WenMan wants carrots on his? LOL Give him a hug!
