A few weeks ago we finally got out to plant our vegetable garden. I am so excited to see what comes of it!
We even put the babe to work. It’s never too early to learn :)
Before we could garden, I needed to make myself something… a gardening apron!
I like to have all of my stuff with me and accessible. Plus, I am very forgetful and I loose things all of the time. I hate having to search my yard for where I left the shovel or my gloves or whatever it is that I am needing at the moment. So when I found this cute vintage looking fabric, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I was going to make an apron to solve all of my gardening woes.
I made sure to cover the fabric with a plastic lining (I forget what the exact name for the plastic is. Just something you can get by the yard at JoAnns.) I wanted the apron to be a little more heavy duty, something that was cute but could still hold up well to me crawling around in the dirt. I am sure a cute oil cloth print would work too.
I used a red bias tape for the edges around the apron and for the pockets.
I finished it off with a big pink bow.
I love it!
While my husband was on a run to home depot to pick up more gardening soil, I had a few minutes to make some vegetable tags. I just used paper and stickers. I thought that these wouldn’t stand a chance to the elements. I am shocked at how well they have held up. I guess it shows that with the power of plastic wrap and clear duck tape anything is possible ;)
Now if only it would stop raining and Summer would show up here in Colorado. I can’t wait to tackle the rest of my yard and other outdoor projects!
