My boyfriend loves to cook (lucky me!) but is really messy when he does so, and after x-mas brought him lots of nice new clothes, we decided that he really needed an apron to keep the mess contained and his clothes intact.  Several unsuccessful attempts to find a cheap apron at local thrift stores later, I decided I could make him one. However, I procrastinated for a few days until he announced that he would be baking delicious Spanish sweet potato cookies this afternoon, and I ran into my sewing room, calling back: "wait!! I'll make you an apron!!!"

Five minutes and really awful old t-shirt later, this:

And look, he's already smeared stuff all over it, lol. Anyway, I hated that shirt. I think a family member may have given it to me a few years ago, and besides the fact that it is about 3 sizes too big, look at the design! Ugh.

Anyway, the specs:
The edges are all still raw, because I was in a real hurry. The collar is intact, as a halter, and the waist strings are braided. In fact, I didn't sew anything! My only tool was a pair of scissors. Here is one more pic of the waist ties:

....and, because they came out sooo good, the cookies!

I can't wait to eat them!

Do you say 'yes' to a single desire? Oh, my friends, then you say 'yes' to all pain.

Every good cook needs an apron merkin. Much safer than going au naturel in the kitchen. Cheesy

That is disgustingly funny. It's even funnier that he let you post a pic of him modeling it...

Love It!
