Here is a great way to reuse what you already have to create something new.   Turn any old dress or skirt into an apron!  What makes this easier than sewing from new materail is that the dress already fits you (or once did)  so you don't need to worry about sizes!

Be sure to check out what you can find at thrift stores, this is a simple gifts idea for the new bride or for a great dirty santa gift!  Get creative! 

Step 1: Dig

*Rummage through your closet and find a dress you no longer wear, or find an old skirt and an old belt to go with it.  I chose a couple items I could no longer wear, and one dress that I couldn't part with even though I couldn't wear it any more.  :)  

<p>Thank you for getting my creative juices flowing again! I was looking for a easy &amp; unique sewing project for me to test out my new Serger with, AND I FOUND IT. Your right, this would make a great gift! </p>
All the best for creative works!
