Mess vest
Mom's spend their lives mopping up messes , trying to get dirt stains out of children's clothes. Here's a neat solution to keeping your little one dirt-free during those messy activities toddlers love. 

If you can sew on a button, you can make this "mess vest"!

You need:

  • 2 kitchen hadn towels that are the same size (old or new)
  • 4 short lengths of ribbon (roughly 12cm each)
  • 4 buttons (optional)
  • needle and thread
  1. Measure the width of your child's shoulders.
  2. Sew the buttons and ribbons onto the hand towels where they'll rest comfortably on your child's shoulders.
