Here's what I did...
You could make the apron out of one pattern and the pockets ruffle and ties out of a complimentary colour/pattern. There is lots of fun to be had once you get the hang of the basics!
Green-ness: 5/5 for repurposing something that may have reached the end of its intended life.
Frugal-ness: 5/5 for only spending a couple of dollars at an op shop (6/5 if you use one from your own collection!)
Time cost: about 45 minutes
Skill level: Pretty basic sewing - cause I'm not able to do much more than a straight line myself!
Fun -ness: Great fun to make something new and fun out of something else!
