Apron Up-cycle

I had this very thick good quality apron which I got when Bulla Cream were doing a promotion. I have nothing against Bulla Cream, yum,  but the apron is a little bland. It was time to up-cycle it and make it fun.

Here is Superman modeling it for me. My challenge to myself was to not spend any money on the project and to only use scraps in the sewing box. The cross-stitch I made BEFORE Superman was born and I had never got around to doing anything with it. So it was time to put it to use, after all this is my year to complete all my unfinished jobs.  I made a quilted border for the cross-stitch and made a flower ribbon. It isn't anything fancy but it will make kitchen chores seem more colourful and fun. Now I am trying to decide if I need to add pockets as well.
