I have a small collection of aprons.
But my problem is this:
I don't want to actually wear my aprons because I don't want to get them dirty.
I wanted to make myself a "get dirty but don't really care" apron.
I found a great tutorial online to make a bandana apron!
Here are the supplies you'll need:
2) Wide ribbon (heavy weight)
3) Heat and Bond strips
First, cut a strip of Heat and Bond to the length of your bandana.
Then take one side of the casing off and put the side without the casing on your bandana.
Iron the Heat and Bond strip against the side with the paper casing.
Then cut your ribbon the length you'll need to tie around your waist and into a bow
(or, in my case, a knot).
Take the other side of the casing off your Heat and Bond strip and place ribbon on the strip.
Flip the whole thing over so that you aren't ironing directly on your ribbon.
Iron your bandana with the ribbon on the other side to fuse the bandana to the ribbon.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

I loved the apron so much I made two!

Isn't the yellow so sunny and cheery?!
