Sometimes the best ideas are the really simple ones.  I especially feel this way about holiday projects because holidays are sneaky.  They always creep up on me when I’m not looking and it never feels like I’m prepared for them!  If you find yourself caught off guard by the Fourth of July this year (it’s in its way!) and need something festive to wear at your barbecue party or to give as a hostess gift, check out this easy tutorial by Susan from Living With Punks at Momtastic.  She used a pair of Dollar Tree dish towels cleverly pieced together to make a cute gingham-patterned flag apron!  [how to make a patriotic dish towel apron]

Project estimate:

  • Dish towels, $2
  • Ribbon, on hand or $1 and up
  • Sewing machine, on hand

Total:  $2 and up
