With school starting right around the corner, and “pre school” and day care all year long, I found a perfect tutorial for making painting smocks. You might even be able to recycle an old vinyl table cloth (I have two of them here that desperately need recycling and 3 1/2 year old quadruplet grandbabies that need the smocks!), or pick up an inexpensive one at a dollar store. Tweedle-Thumbs blogspot has the perfect Craft Smock Tutorial – very easy instructions and a great idea for covering up the clothes while working on painting and other messy projects.
For those of you with children or grandchildren getting ready for school, this would be a quick and easy project to whip up just in time for school!
If you’re looking for other items to reuse your old clothing garments to remake into children’s outfits (help cut down on clothing expenses for school), check out Make A Child’s Wardrobe From Your Old Clothes website and book and see how quickly you can make a bunch of new children’s clothes.
