OK, so I am a day later than promised with these, but I think you will forgive me when you see how cute and easy these no-sew aprons are to make! I was actually going to skip aprons for the cake decorating party this year. I just couldn't find any as nice as the ones I found for the last party and and I really didn't have the time to sew any myself. But.....I was walking though the girls' department at Target over the weekend and I found these adorable ruffled tulle skirts on CLEARANCE!
I instantly had an idea - why not turn them into aprons? The great thing about elastic and tulle is that they do not unravel easily - making them perfect for a no-sew project. So I grabbed a bunch and got to work. I began by carefully cutting each skirt down the side seems. The result: two apron panels per skirt! Then I used my iron and some Heat n Bond (available at craft and sewing shops) to attach a 4-foot length of pink ruffled ribbon to the elastic waistband of each apron.
As a finishing touch, I added some clip-on fabric flowers (H&M) that the girls can later wear in their hair.
So, for less than $5 a piece (and without any sewing!!!), I have a pile of pretty aprons! And they were so easy and quick to make - I was actually able to finish 12 aprons in just a few hours!
