Moda Towel Pack Apron Tutorial

For those of you that have ever purchased a towel pack produced by Moda Home, you will know that they come packaged in this adorable little fabric envelope.  Well, I have been saving my little envelopes from my towels for whatever reason... because they were so darn cute!

I came up with an idea on using these cute little fabric envelopes {besides sitting in your drawer}... A cute little apron!

What you will need:
Moda towel pack with fabric envelope {I used the Flour Sack Towel envelope 961-12}
2 yards of coordinating ribbon
Coordinating thread
Marking Pencil


Be sure your fabric envelope is pressed nice and flat.

Using a ruler and marking pencil, draw a line 5" from each side.  Your middle pocket will be the largest.

Stitch down your envelope on the lines drawn creating 3 pockets.

With your 2 yards of ribbon, fold the ribbon in half to find the center, place the center of the ribbon on the center of your envelope just above the pockets.

Pin the center in place.

Pin down the rest of the ribbon along the top of the pockets.  Be sure not to overlap your pockets so you do not stitch closed the opening.

Stitch your ribbon down along both sides of your ribbon from one end of the envelope to the other.  Be sure to backstitch at each end to reinforce your stitch.

That is it!  Tie it around your waist and you now have a cute little apron to hold craft supplies, money, and more!

All Moda towel packs with envelopes can be purchased from Home a la mode


  1. I don't know if I will make this or not but after seeing your tutorial I think I would like to order the flour sack towels. They are beautiful!

  2. Wow!
    I love these but I've never come across Moda towel packs here in the UK - presumably not available to us?maybe online??

  3. Cute Idea! I love the flour sack towels also! I think they would make adorable pillows for a kitchen bench.

  4. Where can I get these Moda towels?

  5. So cute, although I don't think it would look as cute on me as it does you. So I just realized (I'm slow) that the quilt market is in Salt Lake this year. Do you have to have special tickets to get in? I noticed it's not open to the general public.

  6. The apron is cute! Thanks for the tutorial!
