Making Aprons From Recycled Dresses

Recycle old dresses by making aprons from the skirt fabric.

| October/November 2013

I have recycled my granddaughters’ favorite dresses into unique child-sized aprons. They love still being able to “wear” their favorite dresses. I even used old jeans to make an apron for my grandson.

I used the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha. Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
