The apron is so cute! I don't have a kitchen so I don't really clean dishes that often, but I want one Smiley I think I might try to make an artsy canvas apron to go on one of my glue bottles that I keep in studio at school. It would be so goofy  Grin

Thank you for the tutorial! I used it to cover a gigantic bottle of liquid hand sanitizer.

My blog: I knew that!

Cute apron and bag holder. I had to ban Pop tarts in my house ( and I adore the cherry ones ) my Son at 6 would have one and then drive his teacher insane fidgeting and sometimes running around in circles, now hes 16 and snooty about refined sugars hehe.

Oh my gosh I totally forgot to post how to make the plastic bag holder.  Here goes:
1- 24 inch by 9 inch piece of fabric (for the main bag)
2- 1 inch by 6 inch pieces of fabric (for the ties)
2- 5 inch pieces of 1/4 inch elastic

Fold short edge of main bag fabic down two inches on each side, wrong sides facing and press.  Sew close to raw edge and again about 1/2 in towards outer edge to make casing for elastic.  Thread elastic through the casing and secure down at each edge (it will make the fabric pucker, that's okay)  Then put the fabric right sides together and sew along long edge catching elastic in stitching.  This is your main bag. 
To make the ties to hang it from, fold the 1X6 inch pieces of fabric in half then again to center fold and top stitch along long edge on each piece.  These are your ties.  Hand stitch them to the inside of the main bag behind where the elastic is in the casing so the stitches aren't visible from the outside and VOILA!  One plastic bag holder.  I have one in my pantry, one in my garage and one in my sewing room.  I made on for my friend and she puts her hair scrunchies in it and hung it in her bathroom.  They are so easy to make you can coordinate your kitchen with the soap apron and plastic baggie holder.
Happy sewing!

love the apron, it's made from the same fabric as a table runner I made to trade at quilt club. Need to make one.
