At the caterpillar party we will be doing crafts and knowing most people like to wear special party clothes, I thought it would be a good idea to have aprons for all.
I couldn't find any low priced ones, so I thought I would make simple (no lining) fabric ones, which if they got paint on them or glue etc it would add to the character of them and they could be washed and used again.
It would have been great to try the oilcloth method to make them a bit more resistant, but we just don't have that much time to spend on these.
I am making small ones and larger ones and varying the picture and ribbon used.
This way everyone gets to take home their own apron as a gift!
Making a few things for the Caterpillar party. For a special party hat and outfit this time we will be having a caterpillar headband (made with felt cutouts handstitched quickly in place) and a Tshirt transfer/applique (done very, very quickly & roughly)
I went to a surplus Educational supply store to see if they had any Very hungry caterpillar items on sale and I did pick up some sticker books and some other bargains, but I found this pack for under $5 and have decided to use the flashcards individually along with the pencils in our Party Goodie bags (more on these soon). The giant sketch pad will be handy for crafts too.
