This year, I sewed a lot of my Christmas presents. While fabric isn't cheap, some projects require only a little bit (sometimes a little bit you have leftover from another project), and you can usually create something really special and handmade for the same price as buying something store-bought.
This week, I'll feature one hand-sewn project every day. Maybe you can use them yourself for gifts this year.
Today I'm sharing this kitchen towel project. I don't know if everyone grew up with hanging towels, but in every kitchen in my family, there was always a towel with a crocheted topper that would button on to a drawer pull or the oven handle. When I saw a similar idea - only with fabric - on Pinterest, I knew I had to try it.
I looked on Amazon for towels, but couldn't find any I liked that had good reviews, so instead, I waited for a sale at Meijer. I really like the towels I found, and the final product is very cute. The only thing I added to the tutorial was top-stitching all the way around the top fabric. The top fabric itself was leftover broadcloth from previous projects.
They were also easy to create assembly-line style, so this is a good gift to give to multiple people.
Love and Yellow,
