    I saw this on 'Sewing with Nancy' yesterday. Mary Mulari cut off mens shirt sleeves and used them for gift bags - really cute! Out of the front of the shirt, she cut out a child's apron.

    She also took old cloth tablecloths, cut them in half, and made waist-aprons.

    Just a little something new, for me anyway.

    Hey, I just had a thought: use an old vinyl tablecloth to make baby bibs!
    I want to make some grocery bags and not bring quite so many plastic ones home too.
    great ideas, thanks for sharing butterfli19. :-D
