DIY: Patriotic Dishtowel Apron

livingwithpunks

Need an easy and frugal hostess gift for the 4th?  Or just whip one up for yourself to sport the red and blue while you’re cooking up a feast. 

Use this simple method for any occasion with inexpensive dishtowels!

 

MATERIALS

  • 2 dish towels in red and blue color scheme (I got mine at Dollar Tree)
  • Spool of 1.5” ribbon

 

INSTRUCTIONS

 

Begin by cutting out a 6” x 9” rectangle from the blue towel

 

Place it in the top left corner of the red towel and pin in place

 

Using a zig zag stitch, join the two pieces together

 

Cut the 2 ribbons to your suited length.  I cut mine at 36”.  I like a long ribbon tail.

Attach one ribbon to the side of the top of the apron.  Fold a small part of the ribbon under and pin in place

 

Use a zig zag stitch in a square pattern to attach.  Repeat with the other/ribbon side

 

Have a festive Fourth of July with your family and friends
