Laura here, I am always in need of unique gifts to give to my friends when they throw their fabulous dinner parties. Here is a quick tutorial on how to make a no sew apron and matching oven mitt, using
The super cute wide Black/Ivory Striped Grosgrain ribbon, and Craft Glue from the Ribbon Carousel Store!
(Supplies: 1 oven mitt, 1 matching cotton napkin, craft glue, 5 yards of wide grosgrain ribbon, and an iron)
First, I went to a local kitchen store and bought one oven mitt and a matching plain cotton napkin. I then ironed all the creases out of my apron and folded it long ways so that one side was about 5 inches longer.
I then placed where I wanted my beautiful ribbon to go, and lightly used craft glue to adhere my ribbon. I told you, No Sew... brilliant!!! Sewing machines scare me, and craft glue works like a charm. :D
Make sure your edges are folded over all pretty and glued down firmly. I found that spreading my glue with my finger tip evenly on my ribbon worked the best. I then cut and glued my ties for the apron at the top of the skirt itself, in-between the fold of the apron on both sides.
I then used my left over wide stripped grosgrain to line my oven mitt so it would match. And there you have it a simple but super cute apron and matching oven mitt is born! I also added little bows to my apron and mitt with ribbon from the RC Store! :)
This project is super fun and easy and will wow your friends with the possibilities of ribbon!
