Surprise Party :: Dishtowel Apron with Heather from Life Made Lovely!

Hi there A Bit of Sunshine readers!  My name is Heather and I blog over at Life Made Lovely.  I'm so excited to be celebrating with you and Rebekah today! With the weather turning cooler, I find myself inspired to spend time in the kitchen baking treats for my family.  With that in mind, I have a fun and easy dish towel apron tutorial to share with you today.
I used a lovely dish towel I found on clearance, some vintage seam binding and a vintage sheet from my thrift store stash.  Laying the dish towel lengthwise, I created 4 small pleats across the top edge by folding the fabric over about a half inch and then pinning them in place. After stitching them down, I covered the top edge of the towel with seam binding.
Next I created a flower to add onto my apron.  From my vintage pillowcase I cut two sizes of circles and two figure eight shapes.  I created the "8's" by folding the fabric in half and cutting a circle with a flat bottom.  I layered the fabric with the largest circle on the bottom, next the figure eights overlapping each other, and finally the smallest circle on top.  I pinched the bundle from the back, added a few stitches to hold it all in place, and finished it off with a favorite vintage button.  Oh, and I stitched the bottom layer of my flower directly to my apron to ensure it stays secure.  
The best part...whole project was finished before nap time was over! Thanks for having me Rebekah! I hope you're having a happy birthday sweet friend!! -xo  Heather
