Follow this Dishtowel to Apron Transformation to learn how to make an apron that looks brand new, but won't cost you a cent. Choose any dishtowel with fun pattern, add some bias tape for the neck, and top it off with an adorable decorative pocket. In just a few minutes, you'll be cooking in style. For extra cuteness, add a fun animal applique to the pocket that will make you smile as you cook delicious meals. Upcycling is a great way to save money and create a unique and customized DIY apron.

What fun this pattern is! No measuring for the body of the apron, and fun to create and embellish! This would be a fin project for a craft night, or even a scout or church group. This could even be a nice project to create several for a fund raiser for charity. Would be fin to add buttons or rhinestones for a bit of whimsy or glam! Great idea!

Cheep, cheep the little chick on the pocket is so cute and very easy to make. The striped dishtowel is perfect. Youll find clear instructions and photos illustrating each step, so your finished apron will be just as nice as the project picture. I love ric-rac, and its so nice to use it on this cute apron. The instructions also show other animal possibilities for the pocket. Super pattern!
