With nothing more than a needle, some thread, a few ribbons, and four buttons, you can revamp an old apron into a convertible one that frees up your hands to cut flowers. The pocket can also be used as a place to stash a pair of gardening gloves.
Needle and thread
Fold up the bottom of the apron to make a 10-inch-deep pocket.
Cut four 4-inch lengths of ribbon or twill tape.
Fold them in half, and stitch the loose ends to the edge of the apron as shown, making loops.
Sew on 4 large buttons in corresponding spots.
