No Slip Kitchen Towel

Kitchen Towel
 
I saw this yellow fabric in Joanns the other day and I LOVED IT!  I had no idea what I actually wanted to do with it, but knew I would figure something out.  My awesome grandmother had made me some of these no slip kitchen towels for Christmas.  I decided with spring on it’s way it was about time to make some bright cheerful ones!
 
This yellow reminds me of all the pretty yellow daffodils that are popping up everywhere!
 
Materials:
Fabric
Sewing Machine
New or gently used kitchen towel
Small pieces of Velcro
 
Cut out two matching pieces in the shape that you would like the top of your towel to be.  ( Make sure the very top is long enough to fold over your oven handle)
 
OPTIONAL STEP: Cut two contrasting band strips.  Make sure they are a little bit longer than your actual top part. ( You will trim later)
 
 
Place your contrasting band and top piece wrong sides together and sew. Trim your edges.
 
 
Top stitch
 
 
Place your two pieces wrong sides together and sew.
 
Press with a hot iron a 1/2 in. hem around the bottom of your towel piece. (Do this BEFORE you turn it right side out)
 
Turn right side out
 
Before you sew your towel into your “holder” part, you may want to cut off a few inches so the towel is not so long.  BASTE STITCH across the top and pull on your bobbin thread ( the bottom thread) to gather your towel.  More on gathering HERE
 
 
Insert your towel into your “handle” piece, pin in place and sew.
 
 
 
Glue or sew on your pieces of velcro.  (You may want to put it on your oven handle and mark with a pencil/pen of where your velcro needs to go before you glue it on.)
 
Embellish to your hearts content.  I added some rolled fabric flowers….you can find my tutorial HERE

    I’ve been meaning to do something like this!! Your version is fabulous! Like Vanessa, I too have a little man that is constantly carrying my towels off! And then of course the hubby likes to wad it up after he uses it! Geez!
    Thanks for sharing at Show & Share! Featuring you in tomorrow’s party!
