Apron & Tea Towel | DIY

No kitchen is complete without a good quality, generously sized apron and luckily, whipping one up (as well as a few matching tea-towels) is a pretty easy goal – even for novice sewers. Hooray!
Fabric | Both our online, and bricks and mortar stores are well stocked in linens perfect for this project. Shop our linen range online here.
Sewing Guidelines | We have put together a printable template, so you can have a crack at this project at home: Download the template here.We haven’t gone crazy with instructions, as this is a pretty simple sewing job for those with a little experience!
See the guidelines below for a breakdown of some of the steps.

Straps: Fold in half length-ways with right sides together. Sew 1cm seams and turn through.
Edges: Edges of both apron and tea towels are finished with a 1cm double roll and topstitched. See figure/1.
Inserting Straps & Tabs: Insert straps/tabs into your 1cm roll hem before top-stitching (this way you only have one line of stitching).
Pocket: We went for a classic patch pocket, allowing a good 4cm turn over at the top. Position your pocket about 20cm down from the top of the apron.
We also top-stitched 6cm in from our pocket edge to create a cute little spoon pocket!
D-Rings: Attach D-Rings to the end of your left-hand neck tie and stitch down.
Tea-towels: Cut your linen to 75cm x 55cm rectangles, finish your edges the same as for your apron with a 1cm double roll. We also inserted some tabs into the seams for easy hanging.

Voila!
