Sewing a Dishtowel Apron

Wash your dishtowel in the laundry before sewing.

Lay your dishtowel flat and fold in half lengthwise.
fold in half dish towel

Measure 10 inches from the top and place a pin or use a pencil to mark the spot. Now measure 4 inches from the folded edge. Pin or use a pencil to mark this spot. Cut a straight line through the towel from one pin to the other pin.

cut dish towel edges

Unfold and lay open. Fold your bias tape in half meeting the ends together. This will help you find the very middle of the tape. Measure 6 inches down from the middle and pin on each side.

Make sure this will be long enough or not too long to go around the neck. This is how you use bias tape

one side should be on one side of the towel and the other side of the bias tape
 should be on the back side of the towel.

Continue pinning along sides of apron. Starting at one end of the bias tape sew together. Either hand sew with a straight running stitch  along the edges of the tape, or sew using the sewing machine.

Remove pins as you sew along. Tie a knot in the bias tape at each end. If you would like pockets use a longer towel and fold the end of your apron up a few inches and sew along side edges.
