When I do dishes or dinner, I need a towel. But one is not always found where it belongs. So I use towels that hook onto the stove (or whatever). Well, the one my grandma made was kinda getting...um...old. So I decided to make a new one.
I started with a trip to WalMart. I found a towel set that came with hot pads. ($5 for 4 towels, 3 hot pads, and a washcloth)
I started by finding the middle of the hot pad with the loop on top and the picture on the inside.
I placed the middle of the towel on the middle line of the hot pad, gathering and pinning as you go.
Stitched it together.
Then I sewed a matching button (found in my stash) on the bottom of the pad.
Use the loop to hook the button.
Hang where ever you wish.
Now I have 2 new hanging towels and a hot pad, washcloth, and 2 flour sack towels that cost me $5 and 20 minutes. Probably the fastest thing I've made in the past year, other than hair bows.
