With this sewing craft, there's no need to worry about messy art projects. After you create this art smock, you can put it on and let your imagination -- and paints -- run wild!

What You'll Need:

  • Measuring tape
  • Vinyl fabric
  • Blunt scissors
  • 14 inches of 3/4-inch-wide elastic
  • Needle and thread
  • Permanent markers

How to Make Paint-Proof Art Smock:

Step 1: Get measurements from neck to mid-thigh and from shoulder to shoulder.

Step 2: Cut a long rectangle of vinyl two times as long as body measurement and as wide as shoulders. Cut a hole in the center for head.

Step 3: Try on and see how it fits. Mark the position of where the elastic will go from one side to the other at waist. Cut the elastic in half.

Step 4: Sew each piece on the vinyl fabric. Decorate your art smock with permanent markers.
