30 Minute Tea Towel Apron

Do you have a little helper who loves to assist in the kitchen?  If you have half an hour of sewing time and a spare buck or two for supplies, you can make them their very own apron!  The design even features a pocketed front for holding important things like utensils or plastic dinosaurs or whatever other items a junior chef might need to keep close at hand.  Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts whipped this one up for her son and he loved it so much that she had to plead with him to take it off when it came time to go to bed.  Too cute!  [how to make a tea towel apron]

Project estimate:

  • Tea towel, $1
  • Ribbon, on hand or $1
  • Sewing machine or needle and thread, on hand

Total:  $1 and up

    My grandma used to do something like this!

    Actually most of her aprons were just pretty printed tea towels with a ribbon sewn along the edge. She would do smaller versions for the kids.
