Just Call Me Jamin hosts an American Girl Club in which dollar store crafts abound (all American Girl book themed, of course!). One week she provided a tea towel, some ribbon, and a needle and thread for each girl to make her own apron to go along with the book Felicity. I love spreading dollar store crafting to younger generations! [click here for full project information]

Jamin also has a lot of other good ideas that go along with the American Girl series, if you are interested. She has links to all her projects here: [click me] That’s a whole lotta crafty American Girl fun!

The tea towel apron is a very simple project appropriate for grade school crafters. All that is required is to sew a casing along one end of the towel with a needle and thread, and then thread ribbon through the casing to create a tie.

Project Estimate:

  • Tea towel, $1
  • Ribbon, $1
  • Needle and thread, on hand

Total: $2
