Wrap Skirt to Apron

Hi Readers! Apologies for the long wait until a new post. Within the past 3 months I have started a new job and with that I have had a change in my schedule, so I've been trying to get used to that. Anyways, today I have a refash for you that has become one of my favorites!
I started with a denim wrap skirt that came in a bag of clothes my Aunt gave me.dscn0299
It even has a pocket! (Bonus in my book!)

dscn0408I began by chopping about 10 inches off the length.

Hemmed it!

I used liquid stitch to tack down the side fabric because the fabric flap kept curling up even with heavy ironing.

I removed the pocket, don't worry! I'm going to reattach it later!
Look a hippity hoppity rabbit got in the way!

I used my trusty liquid stitch to attach some orange bias tape to the pocket. (I felt it would be too thick to sew the bias tape to the denim pocket)

I used fabric paint to paint a rooster on the front of the pocket.

I sewed medium orange rick rack to the bottom of this skirt for added decoration.
My idea for this skirt was to make it into an apron! I have a country theme for my kitchen (hence the rooster paint on the pocket) So I thought what better for a country apron than patches!?
I found this great orange fabric at my local supercenter, Meijer.

I ironed on some heat n bond to the wrong side of the fabric, drew on my desired patch design, cut out my design, pulled off the backing and ironed them on my apron!

I also sewed a few stitches using embroidery floss!

Here is where my apron hangs! Ready for me to cook!

Here it is in action!
