Good tools make a happy gardener!
I was looking through a gardening book and came across this awesome apron design--I just knew I needed to make one! I love to deadhead my flowers, but hate hauling around a bucket to put the clippings in. With this apron, I have a "bucket" right here on my waist! Boning holds the chute open at the top and Velcro keeps the chute in place. Just un-velcro, dump into a trash can and voila a happy gardener!
Here are photos of my "affordable" apron.I started out with a jean apron from GoodWill. I then took it apart. I kept the top part, but embellished it with pretty fabric. The chute is made from the skirt part of the apron and some of that cute fabric used earlier. I lined the chute with fabric from a laundry bag from the dollar spot at Target.
Total cost: about $ 2.00.
