DIY: Make an apron

diy apron

Keen winter gardeners can protect themselves from mud and splatter with this do-it-yourself garden apron (although it makes a perfectly good kitchen apron too). If you’re handy with the sewing machine (don’t worry; it’s easy enough for beginners to master too), download the free, step-by-step instructions below and whip up an apron for yourself or a friend. It’s reversible; one side sports a pretty botanical print, the other a darker fabric to hide muddy fingerprints.
