Painted Canvas Apron

Here is a great weekend project that Shelley designed combining two of our canvas cut and sew items an apron and a paint brush holder.  Together they make a great apron for the craft room, garden, studio or kitchen.  This apron is both beautiful and functional and will hang as a work of art.

Hello all! I am here today to share with you my project using two different canvas pieces to become one fabulous look for gardening or scrapping/sewing!

First I took the Large Apron and spray painted it with Tattered Angels Chalkboard Paint. While it was drying I started to construct the rest of my look. Using the Canvas Paint Brush Holder I first cut the string off, then cut, folded, and glued some bright fabric to the front top of the panel. I then glued this to the larger apron once it was dry. Then I added more fabric to the bottom of the large apron and some trim.

Since the canvas was painted with chalkboard paint I did a bit of embellishing to the sides with some chalk! I added a button to the front and piece of flair and my project is complete!

You can sew or glue fringe, fabric or trim to the bottom and top of the apron.


I actually altered the Paint Brush Holder a bit as I wanted the pockets to be a bit bigger. I simply ripped out the stitching with a scissors. Now my pockets can hold all my supplies. This apron would be perfect for gardening as well but for my purposes it will serve as my crafting apron!

I hope I’ve inspired you to create your own fun and funky apron!

Happy creating! Shelley
