The 5 Minute Apron Tutorial

If I had to choose another name for this blog, it would be the Lazy Crafter
Because I am lazy
and crafty

This is also coincidently why I cling to my glue gun like it's the last raft on the Titanic (...too soon?)
Whoever invented the glue gun, my hat off to you.
You made my life a little more lazy, and I thank you for that

Now presenting.....

The 5 Minute Apron Tutorial
Time: 5 minutes (duh!)
Cost: 5-10 bucks
Difficulty: You can do this in your sleep

Materials:
Place mat
Ribbon 
Glue Gun
Embellishments

Step 1: Ribbons
Measure around your hips...Don't forget to leave room for a bow!! Using a stove burner, melt your edges (this will keep it from fraying)
Step 2: Glue your Ribbons
Center the ribbon so it is equal on both sides. Grab your glue gun, and glue that puppy down. I tried only to glue the edges of the ribbon so it didn't look all bumpy.
Step 3: Wear it proudly
Yep. That's really it. I just threw a rosette clip on it for some added flair. 

Enjoy!

I love this! Totally amazed that you did not have to sew it! I need to make one as the going joke in my house is that we live in 1950 and all I am missing is the apron. hmmmm! Anyhow, just wanted to let you know that I featured your wand on my blog @ http://pinkapotamus.blogspot.com/2011/01/pink-hippo-party-14.html and I'm your newest follower!

I really love this. Glue gun sewing is so up my alley. I don't even know how to turn a sewing machine on!

Chrissy said...

This is a great no sew project, only glue :) I can't sew very well yet, but I am still trying. So this is right up my alley :0 Just came over from Show me whatcha got.

Eeeee! Love it! So I've been out of town and I've been hoping you weren't freaking out that your glue gun was missing! It's here--you left it here Wednesday. But I see you have more than one--a back-up glue gun. Priceless. :)

That is so cute!!! I must copy!! Found you from the Penny Pinching Party.

Victoria ObSEUSSed said...

Great idea! Super cute and quick. I've never thought of the tip to burn the edges of the ribbon, I'd be affraid it would catch fire but after seeing you do it I'll have to give it a try. Thanks for the tip and apron idea! Saw you on My Delicious Ambiguity.

So cute! I'm lovin' the idea of a placemat apron; I shared a tutorial for a super-easy tea-towel apron on my blog today! :) Nice work!

Rachel said...

I would so totally do this! Now I just need to find me a placemat as cute as yours!

Crystal said...

Very cute, I always see really cute place mats at the dollar tree, or even Goodwill, but never enough for a full matching set, now I have a cute way to use them anyway!! Newest follower here!! :) I am soooo much a lazy crafter. I just call myself an ADD crafter, I LOVE to do crafty things, but if there are too many steps or something is too complicated, I simply lose interest!! Your stuff looks right up my ADD crafting alley!! :)
