Homemade Gift Idea: Dish Towel Apron
I posted this idea a few years ago.. but it is so easy and so quick to make.. and is darn cute!! Just thought I'd share it again!!
Christmas is fast approaching! If you’re in need of a quick gift idea this dish towel apron may be just the project. It requires basic sewing skills and goes together very quickly. Using dish towels means no raw edges to think about!! :)
You will need 2 cotton dish towels that coordinate and some ½ or 1 inch twill tape.
I purchased my dish towels at Target. I got 5 in a package and the cost was $10. You will use 2 for the apron. I figured $4 an apron was pretty good (plus the cost of the twill tape, I had some on hand already). For my pack of 5 dish towels I got 2 aprons and an extra towel for my kitchen, or it could be put in a gift basket along with the apron.
You can find detailed instructions for the apron on this site: http://thepickledweasel.blogspot.com/2009/11/christmas-making-tea-towel-apron.html
Lay out your towels…
Sew them together….
Use the twill tape for the neck and ties…
And you are done…
