a dish towel & a potholder

have you ever thought about what you could do with a...

dish towel
& ribbon?

how about make an easy sweet little apron?

these would make great gifts!

let's not forget about those boys. leave off the bow and you would have an apron for your little tiger.

here's how you do it:

with your hand towel folded in half pin you potholder to the top.

sew the potholder to the towel.

make a bow out of your ribbon and pin it to the potholder.

stitch the bow to the potholder.

pin two long pieces of ribbon in between the layers of dishtowel and sew.

next pin a piece of ribbon to the left side of the potholder.
make sure the ribbon is pinned to the back of the potholder.

next you'll need a way to attached the ribbon to the opposite side of the potholder.

you could use a snap or some Velcro. i chose a snap.
sew one snap to the back of the Velcro and the other to the ribbon.

make sure to measure where the snap should be by trying it on your little one.

i timed myself and this took about 20 minutes.
not too shabby!
give it a try!

(i got my potholder at the dollar tree and the dishtowel at target)
