For this project you will need to raid your husband's (father's, brother's or son's) closet for the material - you don't need new fabric, just some old shirts! Take that discarded button up out of the boardroom and into the kitchen as an Upcycled Apron. This giveaway is closed.




This pattern includes two unique apron styles. One is an over-the-head smock style, which features a front tie and two large pockets. The neck, pocket and armhole edges can be finished with a contrasting bias tape for a fun pop of color.




The back of the apron features a fun button closure which makes use of the tab of one cuff!




The second apron style is can be made for both a man and a woman. This apron shows off the button placket of the shirt. With an adjustable neck tie, the apron will fit most sizes. Two large "kangaroo" pockets will help you keep cooking supplies handy.




I love that the neck ties are attached with rings!




This apron looks as good on him as it will on her!

Almost all my projects use “upcycled” fabric—felted wool sweaters, denim, shirts. This looks like it would be a fun project that would be much appreciated as a gift!

What a fun looking project! I have some of my late father’s shirts for a project that would have great sentimental AND useful value. He taught me to cook. :)

I’ve only just begun using other pieces to make into useable recycled projects. I learned about sewing so many years ago in 4-H classes.

I’m always looking for new ideas to repurpose. Denim is my favorite. Love recycling!!

I like to recycle it saves me money and I can feel good about doing something. for the environment by reusing things.

Terry on

I make recycled projects as often as I can (just used an old pair of jeans to ‘repair’ another pair of jeans) and plan on making a tote with more of it.

I have made flannel and denim quilts from flannel shirts and jeans.

Wonderful idea for all those dress shirts of my husband’s that he no longer wears

Trying to reuse as much as can these look like fun projects

I recycle whenever I can.

Mara on

Not as often as I would like!

Shirley Cook on

I up cycle most of the time now…trying to get of my stash of denim shirts from a second hand store and outdoor fabric samples from a retail store.

Judith Martinez on

I make projects from upcycled materials all the time. In fact when we moved a year ago one of my big challenges was deciding which items I was saving for upcycling I should move and which ones to give away.

Nancy Myers on

I recycle fabrics (and other items) a few times a year.

Betty F. on

Recycling is the only way to go. All the gifts I make are from recycled clothing
