Now I won't get soaked at work! Some coworkers of mine had some oilcloth aprons to help stay dry at work. (A kitchen... and we wash our own dishes usually which equals wet clothes) I made my own bias tape which took awhile, but is super sturdy (old tablecloth up-cycled). The best part of this project is how cheap it was to make. A yard of oil cloth under $10 and I was able to make two aprons from it. The bias tape was free to me so I now have three $5 aprons which usually retail at least $20.
(I found some chalkboard oil cloth ...you can write on it! at the store as well which I bought a foot of so keep posted for a future project using that)
