Tie One On: Spend No Money

Apron

Remember that 12 pounds of fabric from the Loft that I washed and folded on Friday night?
Scraps
Yeah well, I didn't use any of that for this project. The theme of this month's Tie One On is "No $$." So, I stuck to the rules and used some scraps from my stash and an old sheet.

I didn't use a pattern either. That explains the wonky pleated pocket on the side.
In Place of Pins

Still, I am pleased with this apron and it will serve it's purpose just fine. You see, I park cars for my church in the summer months. My wonderful church is walking distance to the famous Hollywood Bowl and we provide "no stack" parking for every single concert all summer long. 100% of the money collected goes towards the many programs at our church including our work with AIDS patients and the homeless. Sure beats a bake sale!

This apron will replace the free Home Depot apron I usually wear. Plenty of pockets for tickets and change. Plus a secure pocket for my own keys.
Apron
So, if you are local or visiting LA this summer and you have the good fortune to attend a concert at the Hollywood Bowl, I hope you will consider parking at Hollywood UMC. If you see a lady with a tricked out apron- that would be me!

If your interested in participating in this months Tie One On, there is still time. The deadline is May 1. This month there is a give away too! Check it out!

Your apron looks great! I love the spring colors - yellow and green. And even better it is "frugal yet fabulous" : )
