Good thing you had access to the industrial machines at work -- I wonder how/if a home machine would handle this material? Congrats on completing a fully functional apron from industrial scrap.

Wonderful!! I could use this at the barn. It's washable, right? I like it and think it is pretty.

Fun apron and it looks festive enough to wear while cooking holiday dinners this winter.

Interesting texture, and how cool that you made it with the intent to actually wear it. Nice!

Wow, what a great result! And a bonus to have used scraps.

I think that a machine that would sew heavy denim would handle the plastic as long as the feed dogs worked well -- its rather slippery and takes a LOT of pressure on the foot and careful adjustment to the height of the feed dogs to get it to feed properly. You'd have to go slow and careful over the multiple layers. The really tricky part for a home sewer would be cutting the material because it has to be sear-cut with a hot knife and they're uncommon in the home craftroom. One of the guys at work says that there is a hot knife attachment for a common model of soldering iron though. The apron is certainly hand-washable and would probably handle going through the washer but I'd never dare put it into the dryer for fear of it melting.

I love it!!! Great way to reuse scraps, even if they are industrial.
