We all love aprons. Vintage, modern, frilly, simple, colorful, humorous, or sexy...we covet them all. But sometimes we need a quick and dirty (pun intended) clothing protector.....hence the "splat catcher"! They are quick to make and perfect for: saving your clothes from the dreaded mascara drop; covering up that expensive dance costume so your child can eat after spending 8 hours in the gym; protecting school or work clothes while you eat a burger in the car; and lots of other situations.
My daughter made these for the autistic classroom so the teachers could quickly cover the kids during lunch and art projects. Basically they are a towel with a fun fabric top and they attach quickly with velcro.
If anyone is interested, I will prepare a tutorial. Just let me know in the comments.
