Is this clothing?  Seems like everything I make doesn't quite fit into any topic.  Wink
  Anyway, I made one of these for myself last year, then another for someone else and this year I've made a few changes to create, (ta ta ta taaaah!) the perfect gathering apron.
  They're long so you can get down on the ground and dig in the dirt without getting your pants dirty, or without grinding dirt into your knees if you're wearing shorts.  Wink  They have deep envelope pockets for gathering eggs (if you have chickens) or just for keeping a little spade, or some herbs, or some seed packets, or whatever!  The tie threads through some buttonholes at the bottom to gather up the apron so you can carry all of those vegetables you're going to be picking from your garden (I'm saying this as a positive thought since last year my garden was kind of a bust.)
  Anyway, here are two, a third is in the works. I need to get someone to take an action shot but at the moment it's just me, so use your imagination.  Wink

Fantastic idea, thanks for sharing this!  DH and I have started a small garden and this will be perfect for weeding, harvesting, planting, etc.

I'm loving what you've done with the drawstrings. I need to make one like this for toting my laundry.
