Recycle a skirt into an apron


Do you have a skirt in your closet that you no longer wear. Recycle it into an apron! I found this floral A-line skirt at a thrift store and thought it would make a cute apron. It is tres simple! I've attempted a tutorial below. Hope it makes sense. Have fun!


You could also add a pocket or a cute little ruffle at the bottom. I didn't...yet. I just wanted to show you a simple recycle from skirt to apron. Can't wait to see your's.

  4. Thanks for sharing! I bought a skirt the other day with an apron in mind. I needed some help with the directions though. ;)

    I am going to be attempting to make a slip cover per your blog post. Can't wait to see how it turns out!
