Why buy an apron for the kitchen or even the workshop when you can easily make your own?
If you have some old pretty men’s shirts in the closet and you don’t know what to do with them, you can definitely upcycle them into aprons.
Large bib apron that covers from chest to knee provides great coverage and protection from kitchen grease spills and food stains Note do not place an apron nearby any heated cooking ware or flame.
- Old nice shirt
- Rotary cutter/scissors
- Sewing machine/kit

Cut around the collar but leave it intact. Cut it very close to the seam so that you won’t have to hem anything or have any raw edges.
Use rotary cutter and ruler to make a diagonal cut from the armpit to the top of the shoulder. Make sure both sides are even.
On the edge that you just cut, turn a hem under to conceal raw edges, and sew it down. Do this on both sides.
Then use the excess clothing to make the straps.
Close all raw edges in and sew your straps onto the bottom of your diagonal cut. Be sure to backstitch more than once to secure it.
