I made these two aprons using the dishtowel apron tutorial over at I Have to Say. Such a great idea! For this first apron, I actually used half a dishtowel (it was for my 2-year old niece).
I also have been itching to try out embroidery, and luckily came across a 5 week lesson series at Crafty Daisies. For this project, I just used the backstitch (which turned out to be quite simple) and I am excited to learn others.
I was having a difficult time at the store deciding between prints, so I bought two (the polka dots above and the apples/pears below). The apple/pear towel turned out to be so large that I thought it would be a quick and easy project for myself - a new apron in about 15 minutes! You can't beat that.
