Living in the Land of Lincoln

As I mentioned in a previous post, the theme for July/August at the Tie One On blog is "local pride". I live in Illinois, the "Land of Lincoln", which always makes me think of log cabins and copper pennies with Abraham's well-known profile on them, so they were my inspiration for this apron.

Here's the front and back of the skirt I used to make the apron:

And here is the finished apron, with a close-up of one of the pockets (the fabric used along the bottom edge and for the ties is a woodgrain fabric I had in my stash, and the pennies on the pockets were done with a QuickFuse fabric sheet):


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. That is just clever! I have some old denim skirts that don't fit. What a cool "peey pinching" way to use them up. How cool!

  2. This is an awesome idea! My retired neighbor has gotten me into aprons lately. She always wears one and I was envying that she alway had such great pockets to store stuff in! LOL I made myself a couple, but they bother my neck so I rarely use them. I had not thought about just making one that ties around my waist! I have (A least one!) denim skirt that is too small! I am going to have to try this! Of course my neighbor will have to have one too!

  3. What a cute idea! I would have never thought of that!

    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment!
