Sewing Project

When you are cooking and your hands need a quick clean what do you do? Most of us give them a quick swipe down our hips. It leaves the side of our hips dirty. I have a solution for you. 

If you have a sewing machine this is easier but can be done without.

You need a yard of cotton cloth. Cut a 3 inch piece from the length of one end. Put a small hem on all four edges and set it aside. 

Hem all 4 edges of the large piece. Then fold about 6 inches of the cloth. If you iron a crease then it is helpful. Sew a strong hem to hold the folded piece to the sides only. Then make three big pockets by sewing two lines between the sides. If you want to be fancy you can use double lines.

At the other end fold about three inches of the cloth. Sew it to the width of the cloth. Then you will insert the original piece you cut off and hemmed. That is your belt.

 You have just made a wide apron to wipe your hands on.
