|The supplies needed were easy.|
*one kitchen towel...mine actually came from the Dollar Tree!
*one potholder with a loop at the top in the middle
*2 coordinating fabrics in her kitchen colors
|On the back side, I folded that extra length into a nice hem and stitched it down.|
|Here is the inside (wrong side) of the potholder after the gathered towel has been sewn on. This part will not show.|
|Sew a large button onto the front of the potholder so that the loop fastens over it. I used embroidery thread and left little ends to tie, for cuteness.|
|Press the whole thing with an iron. Oh, and sew on the rick rack if desired. I decided my towel "needed" something and I had the green rick rack so it was the perfect way to tie it all together.|
I'm pleased with how it came out, and I think my mom in law will love it. Not too hard. Can be done in small steps 15 minutes here and 15 minutes there. And it only cost me about $3 total. :) I don't think it will be the only one I make either.
Mom in law has been told not to read this post...so please keep this gift a secret, K? ;)
