I went to the Texas 4-H Center in Brownwood, Texas, to teach a sewing workshop. The young ladies did very well! It was a lot of fun. And earlier in the day, I was able to go to the local thrift shop and I finally found two men's shirts in different fabrics but the same brand and size. Results: 2 great half-and-half aprons!
Blue shirt, before cutting
Coordinating red shirt, sleeves cut off and back cut away
I will post photos of the finished apron tomorrow - the photos are on my work computer.
