I wanted to make this super cute apron for years and I am finally that I took the time to make it! I actually made it a few months ago so I could enter it into the fair. I purchased the bright red and white towels at Target, the gold buttons and gold belt buckle at a fabric store along with the black ribbons (one five inches the other one inch). I didn't use a pattern for the red part of the apron, but cut the towel in half then cut the top into the sweetheart neckline that I wanted. Next I gathered and pinned the rectangle piece to the sweetheart piece and sewed. I cut the white towel into two 6 inch strips, long ways, and then folded in half and sewed them to the top and bottom of the red apron. I sewed the 5 inch ribbon from the center to the side only on one side then looped the gold buckle and sewed the other side of the black ribbon, securing the buckle in place. I sewed the one inch ribbon in place for the neck strap and sewed on the gold button. It was really easy to make and only took two hours; however, because the fabric was towel it was very messy, but totally worth it! I think it is really cute and look forward to wearing it this Christmas time.
