I am considering closing down this blog.  With Pinterest so popular and such a great place to get crafty ideas and there being not a lot of girls sending things into this blog I don't really see a need for it anymore.  It has been fun doing it though and I have thoroughly enjoyed the things you all have sent in!  Thank you to all of you who have taken a part in this blog in it's brief history.  :)  I'm going to start another blog that will be just random things going on, occasional craft ideas, articles, etc... that I will post when I have an address and I have a hair do blog that I am getting up and running  So I hope you will all stop by and take a peek!  :)

Crafty Monday

Hi all!  I got a new camera for Christmas so hopefully all my camera problems are behind me!  So hopefully I can keep up with daily posts again!  Hope you will keep checking back!

This is a craft I made a lot over the Christmas holiday cause it made such a great, inexpensive, homemade, useful gift!  I have also made some for a couple of wedding shower gifts as well.  And they have been a big hit all the way around!

Dish Towel Apron

All you need is a dish towel, you can get these for a dollar at Dollar Tree, some cute ribbon, and a sewing machine!
Now I've made the waist apron as shown in the above pic. and also the up and down kind that goes around your neck too.  It depends on the design on your dish towel.
With the waist apron all you need to do is sew the ribbon on both sides and you are done!
On the up and down one (don't know what else to call them! ;)  Pull in the two corners at the top of the dish towel til they meet, and sew.

Then measure out some ribbon just long enough to fit over your head.  Sew onto the top.
Last sew ribbon on at the middle to tie around the waist and you're done! :)
