{refashion friday} Got 20 minutes?

and $4?
Make an apron!

Start by going to your nearest craft shop and picking up these supplies;

  • a pre made handkerchief.
  • one and a half to two yards of wide ribbon.
  • one yard of ric rac, or other ribbon for the bottom.
  • matching thread.
  • a needle.

    Step 1: Iron your lovely pre made handkerchief. How lucky that the edges are finished off so we don't even have to pull out our heavy sewing machines for this delightful apron. I'd bet your feeling cleaver already.

Step 2: sew the ric rac or other decorative ribbon along the bottom. (the handkerchief is a perfect square, so pick any side you like.) Use pins to minimize slippage.

Step 3: Sew your wide ribbon across the top making sure you have centered the middle of the ribbon to the middle of the handkerchief. Use pins to minimize slippage.

That's it sister! Model your creation proudly!
