How To Make a Child's Art Smock

I made this little art smock out of a used rice bag. It takes about a minute to make and requires no sewing. Directions below if you want to give it a try.

Supplies:
Large Rice Bag - if you don' have any on hand, ask your local Asian Restaurant for one
* try to find a bag that has a plastic lining

Scissors

* I turned the rice bag inside out to expose the plastic lining. The plastic repels the paint.

This smock does not close in the back but you could easily add Velcro for a back closure.

Nice idea.
The kanji symbol on the rice bag is "夢" ( dream ).
Really, it has a dream.

What a phenomenal upcycle...my kind of refashion! We eat a lot of rice...buy in bulk...I might need to go get a sack. I've said this before, you are a genius! I think this is one of my favorites of yours!
ps thanks for the tomato pie recipe:)!

What an inspired idea! I'm just trying to imagine what size rice bag I'd need for my very large preschooler!
