In this Instructable I will be showing you how to make a hanging tea towel, with a potholder top. You will need:

  • Half a yard of fabric. Choose something like cotton or linen, so the fabric will not melt when you use your potholder on all those hot pots
  • Half a yard of batting
  • Tea Towel
  • A Button
  • Sew on Velcro
  • Thread
  • Sewing Machine
  • A pattern for the top of your towel

Step 1: Cut it out

Use the pattern to cut out two pieces of your cotton fabric as well as two pieces of the batting
I have been looking for a pattern like this for such a long time! The only thing I have been able to find one using a hand-made octagon potholder attached to a towel. I did not mind sewing the potholders, but it was more like quilting, and I am not a quilter. I barely know how to sew. Your pattern is absolutely WONDERFUL!! Thank you for sharing it with us!
