Sew an apron for a good cause!
Craft Hope is collecting handmade aprons for women and girls in Haiti. Details here:
There is also a list of other items they need, so if you can donate something, I am sure they would be happy to receive it.
Come on, guys. Aprons are easy to make. And it's a really good cause.
Marge, do you have any recommendations for someone who's handy with a machine or hand-stitching but doesn't know how to cut a pattern?
I wish I could,I've made aprons before but I'm up to my eyeballs in projects already. Ive been crocheting blankets for cancer patients lately.
Here are directions for a very simple apron -- no pattern is needed at all. It is very similar to the apron that I made in 7th grade sewing class made for the very first project. (The page Marge linked to said that "half aprons" were OK.)
