Fun to Do

Back in July we went to some garage sales in a friend's neighborhood. I found these tea towels at my friend's sale. Not really knowing what I wanted to do with them, I brought them home. Put them in my sewing room and left them. Well in my wanderings I decided to make another tea towel apron. Some of you will remember that I made a set of these for a bridal shower at school a couple of years ago. I ironed one of the aprons and then using Heat Bond, ironed the ribbon I found in my stash on the apron. I wanted a pocket on this apron so using part of the other tea towel I figured and measured for the pocket. Since the fabric is striped, I wanted the pocket stripes to go vertical as opposed to horizontal. I folded the raw edges under before sewing the pocket onto the apron. The side edges were already sewn. After I sewed the pocket on I sewed a line down the middle of the pocket sew it was two pockets instead of one big one. Voila! Here is the completed apron.
Here I am modeling my apron
for you. I think it is very cute and
I like the way the pocket turned out
too.
Tea towels are very inexpensive and
these are so easy to make. If you
need a quick gift this is it!!!!

    So is the ribbon what makes the ties for the back of the apron?

    You are talented :) I bought a sewing machine two years ago. Determined to learn how to use it. It is still in the box :( Wish I lived close to you, I would take lessons!
