5-Minute Apron

Let's face it: housework stinks. None of us want to do it, but it's a part of life around here. But sometimes the the most mundane tasks can be made a little bit better when you are wearing something cute! So how about a cute apron? We whipped this on up in no time flat (it took longer to set up the sewing machine than to actually put the apron together), and we love the way it came out! Best of all, it was free! We made it using things we already had on hand.

What You Need:
  • a clean dishtowel
  • ribbon
  • pins
  • sewing machine (although you could sew it by hand if you wanted)
First, lay your towel out flat. Wrap your ribbon around your waist to make sure it will be long enough to use as a tie. Then lay your ribbon up against one of the long sides and pin it into place.

Next, simply run it through your sewing machine.

Finally, all that's left to do is tie it on and channel your inner Donna Reed!
Pin It!
