Recently I published a post on how to make three adorable aprons, all different styles, from one Turkish bath towel. You can see that post (which includes a tutorial for the bib apron) here. Now I’m going to show you just easy it is to make the second of these three aprons – an upcycled Turkish towel waist apron. (The third tutorial for an easy boho half apron can be seen here.)

After making a bib apron from a Turkish bath towel, you are left with several towel remnants. Of those, use one strip measuring 4″ x 66″. Also use the largest leftover piece with tassels. Now cut 17″ up from the tasseled bottom of that large piece; use this 17″ x 30″ piece for the waist apron body. (Remember, save all leftover remnants for the third apron in this series!)
step 1 – hem side seams
Fold over both side edges of this 17″ x 30″ piece & press. Then fold over again and pin in place. Stitch down. Press.
