Dish Towel Apron Instructions

via Dixie, Treasurie.

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 you use tea towels with attractive borders. They give the illusion that 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 holiday version. She has a photo tutorial and printable instructions on her site at the link below.
