here's an easy and quick project! it took me literally 15 minutes, including taking the pictures. they are cute dishtowels to wipe your hands on, and an awesome way to keep them put.
keep reading for more on that...first off, you ll need:
Click below for more details!
1 strip per towel of fabric. mine were 16 inches wide, so i cut my strips 17 inches by 4 inches.
whoa. that's the whole list. see? easy.
lay fabric down wrong side up, and with your iron, press the edges in about 1/2 inch. like so.
flip over, center, wiggle if you messed up or went crooked a little..(i always do), pin, and...
sew! the obligatory sewing shot.
and that's it! they'd make great hostess gifts, or part of a present, you know, with some other kitcheny thingybobs. they'd be super cute with some patchwork strips...i'll have to try that next time.
now for the awesome trick. have a little one who likes to pull towels off the towel bar? or an un-trained hubby, for that matter?
add some snaps to your towel, and you'll be in business. they won't budge.
just make sure to hang your towel on the bar, and mark with a dissapearing marker where to put the snaps.
don't just eyeball it and almost mess up your new towels (not like i would know anything about that)
oh, and welcome to all the new readers! i am just so excited to have you!
