Tea Towel Apron

My daughter Amy made this cute apron from two tea towels. Just cut the shape and add the frill and you have a cute individual pretty apron. The white tea towel already had the trim on it so it was perfect and the frill is made from the cut off part.
There is such a choice of nice tea towels these days that you could use so I think we will be making more of these for gifts......Sharon xx <><

How cute is that? That's what I like about visiting everyone's blog...there are so many neat ideas. Now if only I got around to trying them all!

hey sharon, thanks for your lovely the problem with the code I think you may be having is that you have to paste the code into the 'html' part of your post, I am not too familiar with blogger but there should be a tab in the box where you write the text for your post that says something like 'edit html', click that, you will see lots of things like

my text and lots of html code

you need to paste the code in this box then switch back to the normal text version where you write...hope this makes sense anyhoo!!!

love the apron, she is talented, love the frill

it's balmy here tonight, just got back from an after dinner walk and the cottage is very hot, off to shower and bed, see ya later!

oh yep most of the tablescapes have been for entertaining, but not this one, I just played with this while everyone was out today!

I do like to cook, simple stuff I love Nigella's first book How To Eat and Elizabeth David's books, also Nigel Slater is my fave, entertaining has been an issue for me, I have been very reluctant to invite people into my home for one reason or another, you can read about it if you click on the categories on my sidear 'entertaining'

Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog! =) These aprons look darling! My 8 yr old daughter has asked for her first sewing machine for Christmas, so this may just be the perfect project for her to start with. I'll be back to your sweet blog often!

Very cute! I must get some tea towels and make some of these with my granddaughter. We could make them for Christmas gifts. Very clever.

Oh How cute! This would be a wonderful idea for my niece and friend's daughter to make - cute, fun and practical.

I enjoy your blog. Thanks you
