Refashion: purple skirt to apron

In the last week before moving to my new apartment I was feeling on edge.  I realized that part of it was because I hadn’t done any sewing for awhile and I really wanted to be able to see a completed project, something creative and new and not just another taped up box to cross of the list of my old life.  Even though I had plenty of practical moving-related tasks I could have been doing instead, I pulled out a skirt from my refashioning pile and turned it into an apron.  I used lavender fabric for one side of the ties and black fabric for the other side and the waistband.  It was simple, easy, quick, and satisfying.  I boxed up my sewing supplies that night.
