I K E A towel apron project

These little beauties are soft, useful and cost under two dollars to complete.  I am using them for party favors.  Final apron picture at the end of the post.

I cut the ribbon cords in 22 inch strips for the ties.

I sewed each tie 4 inches down from the top of each towel.

The towels came in four patterns.  Once finished I tied them into a little bundle.
You flip down the four inch top margin and tie it around your waist.

Towels 4 for $3.49 each 88 cents
Ribbon for tie - 79 cent a yard
Time to sew two minutes
