Materials included; plastic candy bags, black duct tape, paper backing, thread
I chose candy bags for a reason. My family is known for a serious affection for anything sweet! I knew they all would enjoy seeing the collage of various sweets.
I cut the bags completely open and proceeded to cut them all into strips.
After I wove them together, I then sewed the Smarties banner in the lower center.
I traced the actual Smarties with the thread for a nice touch!
Next I used black duck tape as the binding to hold the weaving to the paper backing. I also used the duck tape as the ties to wrap it around the body.
Everyone did fantastic on their aprons. This was a challenging task for sure! We had an aprons with hand tracings, cookie cutter tracings, family names, and remembering fond sayings and times past. What will we do next year?.....
sharing a bit of family traditions on this artist holiday,
