Wrap Skirt Apron

Hi Readers! Apologies for the long wait until a new post. Within the past 3 months I have started a new job and with that I have had a change in my schedule, so I’ve been trying to get used to that. Anyways, today I have a refash for you that has become one of my favorites!

I started with a denim wrap skirt that came in a bag of clothes my Aunt gave me.dscn0299It even has a pocket! (Bonus in my book!)

dscn0408I began by chopping about 10 inches off the length.

dscn0409Hemmed it!

dscn0410I used liquid stitch to tack down the side fabric because the fabric flap kept curling up even with heavy ironing.

dscn0421I removed the pocket, don’t worry! I’m going to reattach it later!

Look a hippity hoppity rabbit got in the way!dscn0422I used my trusty liquid stitch to attach some orange bias tape to the pocket. (I felt it would be too thick to sew the bias tape to the denim pocket)

dscn1026I used fabric paint to paint a rooster on the front of the pocket.

dscn0423I sewed medium orange rick rack to the bottom of this skirt for added decoration.

My idea for this skirt was to make it into an apron! I have a country theme for my kitchen (hence the rooster paint on the pocket) So I thought what better for a coubtry apron than patches!?

I found this great orange fabric at my local supercenter, Meijer.dscn1038I ironed on some heat n bond to the wrong side of the fabric, drew on my desiered patch design, cut out my design, pulled off the backing and ironed them on my apron!

dscn1045I also sewed a few stitches using embroidery floss!

dscn1049Here is where my apron hangs! Ready for me to cook!

dscn1098Here it is in action!
