FROM CURTAIN PANEL TO APRON

challenge29

I’ve been dabbling in the refashion world lol!& when I saw this vintage curtain panel for $3 I knew it could have a future as an apron,I held it out & studied it for a while as I began to explain to my husband as to how I could cut this part  & make straps & this part to make this ….people began to gather round me lol!

I laid one of my  aprons on top of it to get an idea of how long I wanted it then cut straight across the top

challenge30

then I cut the top hem where the rod goes  through off 

challenge31

the space between the middle  was folded in half, ironed to make a crease & cut into two strips then these two was folded in half, iron & cut giving me  four strips

challenge33

challenge34

then sewed two strips end to end, folded in half & sewed down the sides

challenge35

challenge36

then I cut the bottom off & hemmed it

challenge37

I reattached the top band & ran a decorative stitch across, waiting for that to go all the way across took 14 min. whew! yes I timed it lol!

challenge38

I worked on this project for two days, was it worth it?

challenge39

you bet it was! have to say I’m kind of proud of myself lol!
