I have recently discovered Moda Toweling, and I seriously can't get enough of it! If you aren't sure what toweling is or have never heard of it, then you've come to the right place! I am going to show you what it is, and also show you three different ideas using this toweling!
Moda Toweling, is an affordable cotton fabric that is purchased by the yard. It is 16" wide, and is hemmed on both sides. It comes on a roll, kind of like a paper towel roll and it is cut by the yard. So all you have to do is hem the top and bottom of your towel. It also comes in a variety of types.
I have used both the white and the natural in these projects, and couldn't be happier with them!
For these tea towels, I used the natural toweling. The towels measure 16" x 25" finished. I also made a free pattern for download, so you can make these yourself! You can download here!
Jodie has made these sweet towels into affordable kits so that you can make your very own! Each kit contains enough fabric to make two towels! You can buy the kits here!
For the apron, I used the same method I used to make the towel, except I did 6 prairie points, and I sewed the prairie points on the long edge rather than the shorter edge. I also added a grosgrain ribbon for the ties, rather than fabric! This was such a fun project and took less than an hour to make!
For the apron I used:
5. 7/8" red grosgrain ribbon (2.5-3 yards)
I wanted to also show you a project with the white toweling!
I decided that my little girl needed a fun little apron! I thought ruffles would be the perfect addition to the apron!
4. 7/8" red grosgrain ribbon
If you know how to sew a ruffle, then you can make this apron! All I did was make 4 ruffles by using the width of fabric strips and sewed them onto the toweling. I then sewed a strip of red ribbon above the ruffles to cover my seam. I used another red ribbon on the for the ties.
The sky is the limit here with this little apron, you could add a fun little pocket or even add some appliqué!
I have had so much fun creating these projects with the toweling! I have stocked up on both the natural and the white toweling for future projects! If you decide to make an apron or some towels, I would love to see them! Shoot me an email: email@example.com
