Get Crafty: Make a Gardening Apron
Yes, I admit it.
I am constantly misplacing my gardening tools around the yard.
I seem to misplace my hand pruners, scissors, and gardening trowel every time I am out in the gardens. For years, I have been tinkering with the idea of purchasing a gardening apron to wear around my waist to keep track of everything. Yet, I never could quite find the perfect design. I wanted an apron that tied only around my waist. It had to have deep pockets to prevent tools from spilling out as I bent over. It would be great to have a place for my cell phone or the cordless house phone. I also wanted a place to keep a roll of twine handy. Lastly, it had to be pretty!
This weekend, I decided to head to the fabric store and make one myself. I could design and make it exactly to my specifications. While designing this apron, I kept beginning sewers in mind. If you can sew a straight line, you can make this apron. You can also adjust the measurements to your exact specification. You can even make a wee one for a child. You are never too young to garden.
