Last Spring I picked up an adorable Easter tea towel and pretty ribbon with the full intention of making an apron from them.
But time got the better of me and when spring turned to summer and I still hadn’t made an apron, I put the towel and ribbon in a drawer and forgot about them.
I found them last when when I was cleaning out my craft supply drawers and I figured better late than never!
How to Make an Apron from a Tea Towel
- 1 pretty tea towel
- fancy ribbon (about 2 metres)
- scissors OR blade and self healing mat
- sewing machine and thread OR hem fuse tape and an iron
1. Cut the plain top half of the tea towel off and add to your scrap bin.
2. Measure length of ribbon (enough to go around your waist plus extra for tying) and cut.
3. Fold over the cut edge of tea towel. Iron if necessary.
4. Pin ribbon over folded edge as shown.
5. Sew in place.
If you can’t find a fancy tea towel, you could always embellish a plain one with extra ribbons and trims.
How’s that for an adorable – and easy – project?
