Sewing – Child’s Tea Towel Apron with D-ring neck closure

This apron fits approximately a 7 to 9 year old child.  The tea towel measures 25” long by 16” wide.

Fold the tea towel in half.  Measure from the center fold and place a pin at 3.5” across the top.  Measure down at the side and place another pin at 10”.

Place your ruler to join these pin marks.

And cut.

Serge arm openings on the apron.  Chalk a line at ½” from edges, press under and edge stitch.  If you don’t have a serger, just press under at ¼” twice.  Set aside.

Cut two strips of fabric 3” wide by the width of the fabric – the gingham I am using is 45” wide.

Sew the strip together to make a 90” long piece.  Press in half.

Bring raw edges to middle fold line and press.

Edge stitch both long sides of the strip.

Cut 5” off one end and slide two ¾” D-rings on to the 5” strip.

Bring the cut ends of the strap together, pin and stitch close to D-rings with your zipper foot.

Stitch strip with D-Rings to top right of the apron. Stitch a strip, about 18” to 22" to top left of the apron.  Finish raw edges with a zigzag stitch.

Cut the remaining strip in half and sew to each side of the apron for ties.

To close the D-ring, slip your strip into both rings.

Bring the tail over the top of the first D-ring and under the second one.

You can adjust the strip of fabric to make the strap adjustable.
