It was wonderful for drying children's tears, and on occasion, was even used for cleaning out dirty ears.
From the chicken coop, the apron was used

So many of you have asked for this. I will share the method I use again. I have copied and edited my very first post on this board - so I didn't have to write it all out again.

I read instructions for cutting off corners, or
