Dishtowel aprons

Well, I'm waaaay too late for the Tie One On September dishtowel challenge (look at all these great aprons!), but here are my first three completed dishtowel aprons.

I had a lot of fun selecting the fabrics for the pockets and the ribbons for the ties. I altered a pocket from a pattern and added gussets where the pleats had been for a little extra pop. The pockets took me way too long to make; I thought I was being so smart by basting the bias tape to the pockets and later realized that I should have just sewn it as I constructed the pockets. Blame it on sleep deprivation.

Now, on to tackle the October challenge preferably before the end of the month!


  1. Those are all fabulous!! Nice work...

  2. I love your aprons! The colors and those pockets are wonderful. I would have loved to participate in this month's Tie One On, but there were too many projects on the agenda.
