A Gardening Apron for An Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Gift

A dear friend I met on Facebook sent me a box full of fabric and laces to sew dresses for my Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.  At the bottom were several flip flops! I was so excited and began matching flip flops to fabric.  There were two pieces with gardening tools on them and flip flops that matched that would fit older girls.  So I quickly decided they would be perfect for gardening aprons.

Crafting For Shoeboxes challenged us at the first of the year to make something for a shoe box that we had never made before and an apron was on my list.  I had fun
matching trims and pocket lining fabric (notice picture in upper right hand side of the image).  The colors in this picture are a little wonky!  The flip flops are lime green and match the trim on the pocket and upper bodice perfectly.  Here is the other piece I will be making up into an apron, too, with the matching flip flops.


I will be buying hand garden tools to put with them.  Maybe a small watering can, too, if it will fit (I can fill it with candy & other trinkets so the room inside won't be wasted).

If you love to craft for your shoeboxes you can find all of our craft tutorials here:  Crafting for Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes.
