When I was making an apron the other week Thomas said he wanted an apron, but only the bottom part. He also wanted a green one. So i was going through my stash of green fabric (all of bens old clothes that he doesn't wear anymore) and thought corduroy would be good. Then it hit me that the back pocket of the shorts could be the front pockets on the apron. So all I really did was cut the shorts into a rectangle and for the ties in the back i just cut off the hemmed bottom of the shorts and sewed them to the top sides and hemmed up the apron and whaa-laaa a mapron.
