Upcycling on the Woodleigh Farm
With cleaned feed bags from the farm, we decided to make recycled aprons that can simply be wiped down and used repeatedly. First, we learned how to thread up a sewing machine, how to wind a bobbin and sew in neat straight lines.
Next, we cut out the aprons using a template and then we hemmed the edges. We had to make straps out of strips of feedbags for the necktie and the side ties; this was rather tedious work! Then we sewed them on the apron.
We love some of the pictures on the feedbags.
