I haven't seen these before - I bought one - I think it's adorable ! It's an apron to cover your dish detergent bottle .

Ahh! Those are coming around again are they? We used to make them many years ago--like maybe 15 to 20. They are very cute and you can use any fabric. Luvs

Yep...I had one at least 20 years ago...BUT...aprons in general are making a sort of come back.

Even I now have one...and I love it.

It stops the grease that splatters when cooking from ruining my kit tops.

That's okay, maybe some of us are just older than you! LOL And you are right, things do seem to recycle around. Now I will be watching for padded picture albums and picture frames again--anyone else make tons of those years ago? Luvs

When I spoke with the ladies that sold them , they basically all said the same thing - they sew things that are large - have leftovers and make smaller and smaller things out of that cloth till it's all gone. I bought pot holders,eyeglass cases, purse size kleenex holders ... I like the idea of not letting anything go to waste. Very Frugal women !

I used to make those Kleenex holders for in my purse. I just ran across one in my drawer this morning when I was getting ready to go to church. I think if you wait long enough, most stuff does come back in style......but not until you've thrown yours away or forgotten how to make it :)
