In his latest video, he makes a stain-proof men’s apron (great for women too!) to gear up for sizzling summer barbecues. Note that the bag material (polypropylene) is stain resistant NOT flame retardant. So be careful near the grill.
The apron is also awesome for craft projects. Or bathing dogs.
Lee says you need 2 bags to make 1 apron. He cuts one bag open and then into the shape of an apron.
Loop one of the handle strap around the neck and measure for size.
Remove the other handle and use it as the tie around the waist.
Then sew the trim around the cut edges, tucking the waist band into the trim. It should be about halfway down the apron. (Use bias tape if don’t have a second bag or want to save the hassle of making your own trim.)
