I have ruined so many clothes while trying to paint. I've saved a few mostly ruined outfits to paint in but they are all winter weather outfits and it is SO HOT right now. I've got a ton of projects to paint so I decided to whip up a quick apron to put over my clothes.

I usually paint furniture or the walls and I'm usually limited on time so I always make a huge mess. I hope this helps!

Tutorial for a Handmade Apron

I laid a kitchen apron on top of my fabric and cut the shape out- I added a bit of a seam allowance and quite a bit of extra length. 

Old apron design.

Once that was cut out, I serged around my entire apron.

I made some straps for the neck and waist areas. I used coordinating fabric and serged them.

I sewed the straps on. I like the look of the white serging around the waist. 

Waist strap sewn onto apron.

Next I added the Monet fabric around the neckline. It covers up the area the straps attached. 

I added a couple of pockets. One is thin and long for paintbrushes.

To finish it all, I added my Monet quote- it is PERFECT for this apron. My only wish is that I'd made the apron wider in the chest area to get better coverage for my shirt.

Love this? Don't forget to pin it so you can find it later: 

Love this DIY painting apron.

Awesome handmade apron for painting.

I'm ready to go now! Just four billion more things to paint (approximately).
