These Are so Easy to Make You Can Have a Set Done in a Flash!
Simple kitchen towels become something special when strips of pretty fabric are added. These will be perfectly lovely in your kitchen. They also make wonderful gifts for wedding showers and housewarmings.
These are very easy to stitch up. Consider making a set by matching the color or style of one of the fabrics used in each. In this example, the striped edging and coordinating colors make three towels into a set.
Start with purchased kitchen towels. Then, select fabric for a nostalgic look. Modern fabrics, pretty pastels and traditional florals will be lovely as well. Choose fabrics that work with your kitchen for a nice pop of color.
The towels used by the designer, Alicia Thommas, are 33″ wide x 35″ high. However, you can easily adapt this project to fit any towel size.
Amazon has a large selection of white kitchen towels to choose from.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
