Handmade Gift for the Kitchen

Hanging Dishtowels

I like to make handmade items to give at Christmas that the recipient can use year round. Hanging dishtowels fit in this category and can be as hard or easy as you want to make it. You get two hanging dishtowels out of one towel so it is a twofer, which is great if you need to make a lot of gifts, keeps the cost down! I found a great freePattern by Mara DroganThat I changed up a bit and am very happy with the results! Please send me a picture if you make some.

First change I made to the pattern after I printed it and before I cut it out was to add two inches from the tab to the bottom of the page for pattern piece 2. Then I cut both pieces out and taped them together. This gave me a long enough fold over flap to attach to my oven door. It also changed the fabric length from 7" x 12" to 7" x 14"

Since I was working with fat quarters I did not prewash my fabric but did wash the dishtowels before I cut them!


Next, instead of flannel I used 2 layers…
