Valentine apron tutorial

Last year after Valentines day I bought a ton of Valentine dish towels on clearance.
I found them when I was putting Christmas away and decided to make some aprons with them.

I made this sweet apron in about 10 minuets it is so stinkin easy to make.

Supply list!

2 kitchen towels or tea towels
ribbon about (2 and a half yards)
sewing machine
And any trims you want( I used rick rack and ball fringe)

Now you need to decide which towel you want on top

Then cut in half down the middle of the towel.
Once you have it cut in half you will need to fold under the raw edge about a half of inch

Now you will need to iron

Next find the long side of the the 2nd towel and then place the cut towel evenly on top of the towel and pin in place.

Then sew a strait stitch along the top.
Once this is done cut the ribbon in half and attach to ether side of the apron on the top.
You could keep the apron like that or add trim where ever you want.
 Then Wala your done.

Now put on and bake some yummy valentine cookies.
As always if you have any questions or find any mistakes let me know.
