The “Kitchen Jenny” Tea Towel Apron with optional Ruffle

Oh yes!  MORE aprons!

I guess it’s time for me to admit that I am an apron-aholic.  Funny thing is, I don’t have a cute apron of my very own!  Every time I make a new apron, I end up gifting it to a friend or family member.

I created these for class samples a while back and have since gifted one to a dear friend and donated the other to a Project Prom fundraiser.  See below for the pdf link if you’d like to make these little lovelies:

These aprons are very quick and easy to make!

All you need to make one apron is:

  • one tea towel
  • one package of extra wide double fold bias tape
  • 1/4 yard of contrast fabric for bubble ruffle or 1 yard of pre-gathered eyelet trim
  • 1 spool of coordinating thread

Here is the Handy Dandy PDF Ruffled Tea Towel Apron Tutorial that I created for this project.  It includes the pattern template to cut out the curved under-arm area, too!

If you need a little extra help with knowing how to make the bubble ruffle or to sew on the bias tape, then please click these previous posts:
