Kitchen Towel Makeover

 I made these kitchen towels to go in my newly updated kitchen.  They are so much fun to make.  I love quick sewing projects like this because I get a “fabric fix” without a lot of mess!

I made these towels using “bar mop” towels from Target – they are $4 for a set of 4.  I recommend washing them – they turn all different kinds of shapes in the dryer!

I sewed a band of fabric with Ric Rac edges to the bottom.  I folded the raw edge in at the sides of the towel and top stitched the whole thing.  The top loop I made with ribbon and Velcro – that way I can get them on and off the handle of the oven.   I sewed an accent square out of a charm square (5″) in the corner to hide the ribbon ends.  Easy Peasy!!




  1. Wonderful idea! Thanks to you, I now have a new way to use those cute bits and pieces I can’t bear to toss. Toss? No one does that, do they?

  2. These are great ! I’m going to make some, one DD has her first apt. and the other a new house … plus I need new towels too. Thx for sharing with us !

  3. Great idea, so easy to customise to your own kitchen/bathroom colourway. Now added to my ‘to make’ list.
