Intro: Say Goodbye T-shirt and Hello Apron (with Just a Pair of Scissors)!
Imagine...with just a few snips you can be wearing your favorite t-shirt as a functional apron each time you work on an instructables project.
Step 1: Create the Apron Neckline
*Cut from the front of the armpit, around the collar, and back down the front of the other armpit.
*If there is anything on the back of the t-shirt that you want to save, trim it out now.
Step 2: Create the Apron Strings
*Turn the t-shirt over to the back and starting at the bottom center, cut a "V" to within 3" of the armpit.
*Remove the sleeves, being careful to not cutting beyond the seam.
*Next, cut 3" up from the bottom center and then follow the line of the earlier cut creating a 2-3" wide ribbon up to where the sleeve was attached.
*Turn the t-shirt back to the front.
Step 3: Tidy Up If Desired
*Notice how the strings are bumpy at the top. Feel free to round them with the scissors.
*This is also a great time to enlist a friend (with a sewing machine or access to stitch witchery) to attach any portion of the t-shirt that you saved in Step 1.
Now go out there and make something in your sweet apron!
