Kitchen Towel Makeover


 I made these kitchen towels to go in my newly updated kitchen.  They are so much fun to make.  I love quick sewing projects like this because I get a "fabric fix" without a lot of mess!

I made these towels using "bar mop" towels from Target - they are $4 for a set of 4.  I recommend washing them - they turn all different kinds of shapes in the dryer!

I sewed a band of fabric with Ric Rac edges to the bottom.  I folded the raw edge in at the sides of the towel and top stitched the whole thing.  The top loop I made with ribbon and Velcro - that way I can get them on and off the handle of the oven.   I sewed an accent square out of a charm square (5") in the corner to hide the ribbon ends.  Easy Peasy!!

  7. Did you iron the towel when it came out of the dryer all wonky?
