Sew Easy

This is a very simple project to do.
You can use ready made pot holders or make your own.
I needed some new ones so I just shopped the $Store.
Got 2 potholders and 2 towels for 4 bucks.
I did wash the pot holders prior to sewing.
Just to be sure there was no color bleed.
If you do not have a cabinet handle to hang them on they fit over some oven handles as well.
Make fast and fun gifts too!
Can begin the Christmas gift sewing now!

Start with a towel and potholder.

Gather the towel up in middle.

Pin pot holder to gathered part of towel .
Make sure the loop is at top .

Sew on machine using your even feed foot.
I go slow and use a bit longer stitch.
Do Not Sew Over Pins.

Fold up your pot holder find middle of loop.
Mark and sew on your button.

Slip over your handle and button up!
Your hanging hand towel is ready to go.

  14. Hi Lola,
    Catching up on your blog. This is a great idea! Thanks for the step by step!
    P.S. I sure hope your right about spring eventually getting here!

  15. Okay, now I have to follow you. You are a star at the irish muse, that is where I found you. Then I found your tutorials on the towels and the pot holders. You sold me. I have two gals getting kitchen remodels and this is perfect to add to my little basket of stuff I am giving them.

  16. What a great way to do this, and such a lovely finished product. Nicer than the crocheted top. Thanks for sharing.
