Instructions

When your newspaper apron gets dirty (as all aprons eventually do), throw it away and make a new one.

Put three sheets of newspaper together.

Fold in half the long way and cut an arc from the outer corner at the top, as shown.

Open. Fold the top edges down about 1 inch (2.5 cm).

Center a piece of string (about 20 inches (50 cm)) long inside the fold and tape the fold closed. Tie the ends of the yarn together so that the loop slips easily over your head.

Punch a hole on each side at the waist. Through the holes put strings long enough to tie around your waist. To keep the strings firmly in place, tape over at the holes.

Add pockets if desired.
