Tea Towel Aprons

Another 2012 F-A-L finished for the 2nd quarter that I started it over here.

Missouri Star Quilt Company has a tutorial for making tea towel apron that I found intriguing. So while this is not quilting it is fabric…..

The towels I purchased:

These are fabrics I found in my stash that I thought might work with one of two of them:

This is what I ended up with:

The one on the left I made by sewing individual straps on either side of the waist and neck. The one on the right I made using Jenny’s method where you have one long continuous strap and the neck strap is put over your head and adjusted by the waist ties.

Here is a close-up

The tie is fed through one side of the apron to the top and down the other side. Here is what it looks like from the back where it is inserted:

Missouri Star has a tutorial on how to make this found over here.

These go together really quickly and will make nice gifts.

So what you have made off the beaten quilty path?

Enjoy the journey, Jackie
