I wear an apron around the house most of the time. I use my smart phone a lot, and I like to carry it with me. But if I put it in my pants pocket, I’m concerned that I might crack it. And some pants don’t even have pockets.
Alright, alright I’ll tell the truth. I’m afraid I will forget my phone is in my pocket and drop it in the toilet. OK, are you satisfied?
I have been using a freebie apron from the lumber yard. I can’t complain about the price, but I think it’s more of a “guy” style. Other aprons I have seen are awesome but maybe a bit too frilly to be practical for me. I’m not going to choose between durable and good-looking. I’m going to have it all.
I found some weird-looking polyester knit fabric at the thrift store. Of course, I had to have it. It looks like something from the 1970s. Kind of a diagonal gingham check in dark green. It’s a nice heavyweight knit fabric, and all polyester, so you know it will wear like nobody’s business!
I made it with big slanted pockets. My phone goes on my left hip, my keys on my right, whatever else I need can go right in the middle.
I paid 59 cents for the fabric (and I have some left over) and I used part of a dollar store spool of ribbon for the ties.
