I have REALLY been needing to buy new kitchen towels. You feeling me? I didn’t want to spend a ton, so I went to the Swedish Superstore. I scoured through their ever-changing selection and didn’t find any that I liked. When I swept by their fabric department, I found some striped cotton fabric that I liked but had no idea what I would use it for. Make towels! So easy. So cheap. Done.
To make 6 nice-sized towels, you will need 1 3/4 yards of 54″ wide fabric. Cut 6 pieces: 31″ x 18″. You will double hem all four sides 1/2″ for each hem. Begin by hemming the long sides.
Once you have ironed down your double hems on both long sides, use your edge stitching foot and straight stitch, lengthen your stitch length to 3.5 and move your needle position over to the right.
Edge stitch down both long sides and then repeat ironing and sewing the same way down both short sides. All done! You will have 6 new towels to proudly hang in your kitchen!
