Go Green Apron


     (Eleven Gifts-a-Giving continued from HERE)

Go Green Apron

A Go Green Apron is not a regular apron. It’s basically a towel you wear around your waist so that you don’t have to keep using paper towels to dry your hands. Hence, it’s “green”.

My little neighbor, Lindsay, modeled the apron for me.



Christmas towel made into an apron


This is really easy to make. I took a kitchen towel. In this case I bought a Christmasy type towel and cut it in half.
I bought a red ribbon (it’s more like a cotton bias tape) and sewed it along the top, leaving some in the back for tiers. That’s it. The bottom edge of the apron is the finished edge of the towel so no sewing needs to be done there. Each towel makes 2 go green aprons.
If you want you can put on a pocket but this apron is to be used as a towel that you wear.
To make a really nice presentation I bought a bowl (plastic serving bowl from the Dollar Store) and two dish cloths to go with it.

I bought a clear plastic Christmas ball from Joann’s and put some pine needles and red berries in it. I glued on a Merry Christmas ribbon, too, and a little bow with string.

Then a quick wrap up in cellophane and wala!! A very presentable present, indeed.

Wee Little Bottle Necklace


The last of the Eleven Gifts-a-Giving is the sweetest little necklace, perfect for gifting. I bought this little bottle from Amazon and it comes in a collection of 9 bottles HERE. (not getting any compensation - just want to make the information available).

In order to make a necklace, you need these little screw thingees.

I love fast and cute crafts and this is the fastest and the cutest!

I think anything small can be put in these little bottles…. sand and small shells, beads, well, you get the idea. It was so quick and fun to make, too.
