Welcome to my post for the
I like to have a tea towel handy by my sink to dry my hands.
These cute tea towels are perfect for the task
and add a splash of color to my kitchen
The fold-over handles on these towels make them easy to hang
anywhere I need a quick cloth to wipe my hands.
with the following free pattern:
I did not cut a kitchen towel.
I used this lovely cotton
and doubled the layers by sewing on three sides and turning and pressing.
This cotton waffle fabric is my favorite for kitchen towels
as it is absorbent and quick drying.
This fabric may be found @ Fabric.com
I am not affiliated with these shops.
The pattern called for a decorative button,
but I much prefer these quick and easy snaps.
I dressed up the simple snap with a yo-yo skirt.
This is a Plastic Snap Plier Kit from Dritz
On the weekend I was back at home and was able to make some more pretty new helpers for my kitchen. All of these items easily were made in a day and a half.
I used my snap plier to make cloth towels on a roll
to fill the constant need of paper towels.
I used some inexpensive terry cloth in my stash
and some pretty quilting cotton for my towels.
I made a couple of basic kitchen towels with the waffle terry
and some striped woven tea toweling fabric.
Mr Scrapatch really liked these so I will be making more.
I made a few non-abrasive dish scrubbers
by adding a square of shelf lining to one side.
These were mare very similar to this project from the past ...
The only difference is that layered terry cloth scraps with a square of easyliner and then I just straight-stitched the edges
and trimmed the extra terry cloth around the raw edges.
I hope your enjoyed stopping by my kitchen today.
