A dear friend I met on Facebook sent me a box full of fabric and laces to sew dresses for my shoe boxes. 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.
