Aprons! I had a snotty moment back before I fell in love with aprons and I recall saying, "Ugh, what a waste of fabric. Why would you cover up your clothes like that! Then you just have extra clothes to wash."

Which was a legit concern. Extra wash isn't much fun or eco friendly. But in the past year, I've been considering how to be more eco friendly with clothing. A big part of that is making sure to extend the life of my clothing. This means LESS washing, gentler washing, and less wear and tear on them.

"Back in the old days" people treated their clothing very different than we do now. They only owned a few pairs of clothing, wore them many times, and washed them much less frequently. As a result, they would use aprons to cover up when doing messy work.

Aprons make great gifts for the people in your life who like to cook, paint, or craft. They're also great to make for children because gosh- they need to protect those clothes if the paints or markers are coming out. 

Supplies Supplies listed below may include affiliate links to the products.

  • Fabric: I recommend a thicker fabric. Old jeans would work beautifully for this if you wanted to make this an upcycling project.
  • Pattern (available free to subscribers)
  • Optional: Use a wide ribbon instead of making fabric straps.
