My kitchen towel on a string

I chuckled when I read about Show Us Your Apron on IMBB. I don't use an apron in the traditional sense of it protecting me from splatters or accidents during cooking. Of course, if it does then that's a bonus. My 'apron' is primarily used for me to dry or wipe my hands during food preparation.

I wash my hands very often when baking or cooking. Since all I really need is to tie a kitchen towel to myself so that its handy, I sew my own aprons. They are made from a kitchen or tea towel with a strip if binding sewn on one of the longer sides.

I go through about 2 of my aprons per cooking session. I started with the 2 striped ones which now look rather grubby despite repeated washes so I've had to make new ones. Here are all my very functional aprons!

It's very simple and logic but it never cross my mind to do simply that :) I have 3 beautiful aprons in cupboard ... they are so pretty that I didn't want to dirty them.

Me too! I have beautiful Martha Stewart kitchen towels that I couldn't bear to make into aprons so they're still in the drawer waiting to make an appearance.

Thanks a lot for this entry! I have been thinking about doing it this way for some time now but I never get around to get the sewing machine out, it's perfect for aprons! Now I hope your post will push me to finally do it it!

What a great idea! Wish I wasn't so lazy.

I usually just tuck a kitchen towel into my belt, but this makes much more sense...
