|This one has the potholder attached to the top, like the one I made for my Mother-in-Law so that it can be fastened to the oven handle. I plan to attach green potholders to the other 2 towels as well, once I find the ones I need at the store.|
|I ironed in a hem on all sides of the strips of coordinating fabrics and sewed them to the towel, plus added rick rack for a sweet vintage touch.|
|For this towel, I machine stitched 3 rectangles of fabric together to make one long strip. Then ironed in a hem and sewed it to the towel, finishing it with some rick rack.|
|This 3rd one is my favorite. I love the four bits of fabric sewn together, and I put a little green bow on the 'different' square which is mostly yellow with flecks of green in it. Putting it off center adds interest.|
|I heat sealed the ends of the ribbon and sewed it on securely.|
|I also heat sealed the ends of the rick rack so they will wash up nicely. I was sorely tempted to add some buttons as embellishments, but that would hurt when you dried your hands on these, so I stuck with soft embellishments.|
I'm thinking these would make nice Christmas gifts...and who knows they might end up being a new product on my Etsy shop, Perfect Darlings.
You can make your own if you have a sewing machine and can sew a straight line! Give it a try.
