Broad Beans and the Easiest Ever Apron-from-a-Tea-Towel
Here's how to do it:
Find a funky tea towel.
Cut it to the size you want, perhaps 2/3 of a tea towel.
Use the cut off portion to make ties.
My tea towel came with built in trim and embroidered rooster, as soon as I saw it I knew it really wanted to be an apron. As the towel had more trim along the top I cut a wide strip off the top and sewed it back on as a waistband, cunningly concealing where I sewed the ties on.
Truely sewing for dummies. Even I managed to break only 1 needle and sew things together the wrong way no more than 2 or 3 times.
I really should not be let near sewing machines! To be honest, I've never broken a sewing machine needle in life before - but I always sew something the wrong way round.
