Step 3
Pin the twill tape about 1/2" from the top of the longest side of the towel.  Make sure it is on the right side of the towel as well.  If there is an image or pattern that is prominent, make sure that is facing out.

Stitch down one of the long sides of the tape.  Cut threads and stitch down the other long side of the tape.

That's it!  Now try on that apron and see how it fits.  If it doesn't fit, you may need to cut a larger ribbon or some more twill tape.

The best part about this apron is that because it is a towel, it will absorb spills, can wipe counters and keep little noses clean. 

And when it is good and dirty, simply add it to the wash to get it nice and clean.
