Introduction: The Perfect Kitchen Towel

About: I'm a musician, crafter, dessert lover and proud grandma.

If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen as I do, you know kitchen towels are one of the most used kitchen items.

It's very convenient having a towel hanging in the kitchen. It won't take countertop space, and you can easily reach it. But I had two problems: I use it so much that one towel wasn't enough, and it falls down easily.

Today I'll teach you how I fixed those two problems.

It is perfect to make as a gift for a bridal shower,

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

Two (or more) kitchen towels

Bias tape




Step 2: Sew

Put two towels together.

Sew the top side.

Step 3: Gather

Make a seam by hand next to the one we just made with the sewing machine.

Make long stitches and gather.

Step 4: Sew the Bias Tape

Sew the bias tape cantered on the top. Mine is 30cm long.

To give it a nice finish, then sew the tape by hand making it wrap the top of the two towels. See the picture.

Finally sew both ends of the bias tape to close them like a tube.

Good job! Just tie the ends of the bias tape to you fridge, oven or kitchen cabinet and let the cooking begin.
