Make-do Apron. "In my mother’s day, women used to take the collar off a frayed shirt, turn it around, and stitch it back on. When that side wore out, they often used the fabric to make something else—a quilt, or in this case, an apron. Patterned fabrics from one shirt can be used to edge an apron cut from another. It’s easy to make attractive complementary combinations to create a vintage-style apron like the one below."

1930s aprons were often made with printed chicken-feed sacks that doubled as fabric for aprons. We know them today as feed sack or 30's prints.
