How to turn a tea towel into an apron

Cook's ApronStitch With Love by Mandy Shaw

This great upcycling tutorial which transforms a tea towel into a chic cook's apron is from the book Stitch With Love by Mandy Shaw, published by David & Charles.  You can read our review of this book here

This apron is made from a tea towel, like the ones you can pick up in the supermarkets.  When choosing a tea towel, make sure you select a woven rather than a printed one – the tea towel is folded over to create the roomy pockets, so the back of the fabric needs to look exactly the same as the front.
