There is nothing funner than giving new life to something old. I never throw away old sheets they are so handy for a tonne of things; rags for cleaning (household/tools), upcycled into cushions, teepees tents for the kids,fairy wings, the list is endless. Now we already have a teepee for Kobe which is used to hide toys or hide in for the “monster game”. So I thought why not use this $1.50 Thomas the tank engine thifted sheet to make some painting aprons. Something handy Kobe does everyday.
Painting with lil ones (even with washable paint) gets so messy. I originally was going to make a painting apron complete with sleeves but tossed that idea into the too hard basket & settled on a normal apron. Now its not perfect (a lil lop sided- ha!) but it protects most of him from paint. Instead of making ties for the neck I decided to go with elastic as its easier to go over Kobe’s head.
I made 2 of this aprons so far (double sided) & have enough to make atleast 2 more. So Im chuffed about that, not bad for $1.50! All I need to do is learn how to make my own non toxic cheap kid’s paint & Im set.
Happy Saturday friends!
