I made a pillowcase apron

I bought a really cute pair of vintage pillowcases at an estate sale a few weeks ago. It was a hoarder house and the estate people had to put all the linens on a shelving unit in the bathtub. I scored dozens of sheets, towels, and pillowcases from that bathtub.


I made two aprons from the pillowcases this weekend using Betz White's awesome 10 minute apron tutorial.

Betz uses a wide grograin ribbon but I didn't have any that matched my pillowcase. I had a pack of white quilting bias tape. The white looked a little boring by itself so I added some yellow ric rack.

I'm super excited about my new apron. I love the deep pockets and the fun colors. More on what I'm doing with the other apron soon. ;)

What do you think about my new apron?
