CAN YOU DIG IT? Use your creativity

The directions for the garden's apron and gloves may be found at Disney Online's FamilyFun on the Web at They have been modified for this project. Supplies you will need:
Canvas carpenter's apron (available at hardware stores).
Canvas garden gloves.
Fabric paint and brushes.
Rubber stamp with garden motif.
Wax paper or plastic wrap.
Place the apron on a flat work surface. Line the inside of the pockets with wax paper or a piece of plastic wrap so the paint doesn't seep through to the back.
Using a rubber sunflower stamp or a stamp of a bunch of carrots for your pattern and a paintbrush, generously load your stamp with paint. Use a different brush for each color.
Carefully, turn the stamp over and place it firmly on the apron, taking care not to let it slide it around.
Remove the stamp from the apron and fill in any gaps of color with a fine paint brush. Take your time so you don't lose the outline of the stamp.
Decorate all the pockets of the apron using the same process.
Reload your stamp with paint for each image.
Decorate the backside of each glove using the same process.
Let dry, remove the wax paper and follow the instructions with the fabric paint to set the pattern before washing.
Fill the pockets with seed packets and gardening tools. Use a pinch-style clothespin to clip the gloves to the front of the apron when they are not being worn.
