A good friend cleaned out her fabric stash and passed the stuff she didn’t want on to me including this red plaid. I didn’t know what to do with it for the longest time but as I was putting together a care package for some farming friends I thought of that fabric and decided to make them some garden aprons out of it. The aprons turned out quite nicely and I decided to use the fabric up completely on garden aprons and a few tote bags.
As I was making these, I decided to use them for a small random act of kindness project. I’ll be mailing some off to friends and sharing some with charities in the coming weeks. It seemed like a great way to use up some gifted fabric and burn off a little creative energy at the same time. Showering the end result with others, well that’s just a bonus.
What creative projects are you working on? Any random acts of kindness planned that you care to share to inspire the rest of us?
