Your husband did a great job! I thought about alternatives to ties, such as velcro or magnetic snaps. Great idea to use a buckle clasp.



Thanks, I think he did too! The clasp is easily adjustable which makes it extra nice, and very easy to put it together behind your back.

My husband made me an apron last year from his old jeans (and he doesn't sew) and I love it! It won't win any beauty contests but is so practical with all the pockets and belt loops. There's a buckle clasp thing in the back at the waist. His hope was to make it look like a pair of daisy dukes, lol.

I use mine worn out or mismatched ones for jar cozies and fingerless mittens ... It helps that I wear only wool.
If the heel wears out I snip the toe off and have a nice mitten that sometimes is longer enough to warm my arms too. My favorite is cutting off the whole foot part, leaving me with a tube I slip around the mason jars we drink from. Great for hot or cold drinks! I also have those screw on sippy tops for some jars and it makes them into lovely portable tea mugs.

We gave our two year old a good solid short handled spade for his birthday (he's now 13) and he still has it and loves it. Endlessly useful and portable. He loved that it was just like Dad's but smaller. He learned respect for sharp things early, and is now forging and grinding knives on his own. Now if I could only teach him to clean up .
