My friend Vicki asked me how i make my kitchen hand towels so i told her that i would do a tutorial on how i make them.
First off i use this lovely pattern by Kerryanne English template is here thankyou Kerryanne for such a lovely design.
If my hand towels are lovely thick ones i make the template a bit larger.
I iron the interfacing onto the back of your pieces and then iron up a hem at the bottom about half an inch make sure when you put the pieces on top of each other the hems are the same size.
Then with the 2 right sides together sew around the outside but not the bottom.
Then trim your corners and turn inside out and press.
Then get your hand towel i cut one in half and i get two,gather up the top edge.
Gather the top of your hand towel to fit inside the top piece,i tuck up about half an inch to make sure that i get all the towel up there.
The stitching gets the back as well,here is the front of one towel and the back of another.
Then do the buttonholes
Sew the buttons on and give them a press and this is how i make my kitchen hand towels,there are probably many other ways but this is how i make mine.
Good luck trying one,they make lovely gifts.
Hope your day is a good one.
Cheers Shez xx
