Dish Towel Apron Instructions
Dixie says that when it comes to a standard-sized tea towel, they do vary slightly between brands. Be sure to make sure it is large enough to cover your front.
She also suggests that you look for tea towels with attractive borders as they give the illusion you have used more than one fabric and make the design pop.
As you can see from the above photos, Dixie has created some lovely looks including a wonderful holiday version. She has an excellent photo tutorial with printable instructions.
