Hanging Hand Towels

Standard

As I had the sewing machine out and I was on a bit of a roll yesterday, I thought I would make some hanging hand towels.  I have wanted to make these for ages.

I had been using tea towels as hand towels in the kitchen.  Despite their different pattern and colour, everyone was confusing them with the dish towels.  Annoying.  What was even more annoying was the fact that they wandered.  The hand towel would never be where it should be.  When you desperately needed  it, the hand towel would be hiding under a pile of dishes  in the dish drier or scrunched up on a seat in the dining room.

I scoured the net looking for a pattern to make some hanging hand towels and came across this one.

I purchased the appropriate hand towels and some matching fabric with the view to making these ASAP. Ha ha! 4 months down the track, they are complete.

I am really mad with myself that I didn’t take the time to make these sooner.  They took hardly any time at all to make and they have solved a problem that really annoyed me.
