Dear Creatives, I am starting to sew some aprons for Haiti using a pattern & tutorial I came across. This volunteer apron project is going on at Craft Hope until the end of May if you haven’t heard of it. It is for a great cause & I did a little round up of easy to do apron tutorials! Yes, you can make one in ten minutes or more if you want to join in. I promise to share what I make, but being so busy this week I don’t have time for pictures, editing… { all about the apron project & address at end of post} First up the tutorials & patterns.

This is a 10 minute apron tutorial for a pillow case apron from Betz White.

Craft Hope Project # 17

It is unlikely that the average Haitian woman will ever receive anything that is special and pretty, something just for herself. Daily life for the Haitian woman is grueling and backbreaking. Most have to carry 5-gallon buckets of water on their heads from miles away. Cooking is done in a pit in the ground from handmade charcoal. The few pieces of clothing they have are washed in the river and hung to dry. To receive something as precious as an apron made with love from pretty new fabrics would go a long way in making a Haitian women feel special. We would love for you to join us as we sew and collect aprons for the women of Haiti!
