As soon as I found the original idea on Pinterest I knew I had to make them. I just needed the kick-in-the-pants of the kitchen series to motivate me make them... finally. They are so incredibly easy to make and add a dash of style to my otherwise white kitchen.
What you need:
One standard sized dishtowel
Some fabric (a quarter yard or so will allow for enough fabric)
One piece of felt or flannel that has the same base color as fabric
Matching or contrasting thread
Button, snap, or velcro
Computer hooked up to a printer with ink
What to do:
Begin by gathering your towel and material. They can match, compliment, contrast, whatever you like. Visit the original post here and download the free template.
Tips: be sure to follow the instructions on the template sheet; iron everything before you begin; try to get your gathers to look similar on the two separate towels; I used three rows of stitching to attach the towel to the fabric portion... just in case.
I want to thank Mara at Kleios Belly for the free template!
