Craft Of The Day: A Retro Cute Reversible Apron

Posted: Updated:

We were so thrilled when hostess aprons made a comeback -- and even more thrilled when we saw the idea for today's Craft Of The Day. An added bonus? This apron from Warehouse Fabrics, Inc. has reversible sides, giving you two looks in one, without really adding much in terms of extra work. The hardest part? Deciding on two fabrics. Though we love pink and black, we also think red and blue or turquoise and brown would make for a great combination as well. Anyway...ready to begin? See the how-to, below!
