No Slip Dish Towel

As soon as I saw this idea (via Pinterest) from Pin,Sew,Press I knew it was genious! With two small kids I am constantly picking up the kitchen towel off the floor from the oven handle. I’m already looking for the perfect hand towel for the bathroom to do this!

This is a perfect beginner sewing project…If I can do it so can you. Although I do have good news. My sewing skills have improved since I upgraded machines to a hand me down Singer from my grandma. It really does make a difference to have a great working machine. Yeah…

Here’s my one sentence tutorial. Sew two 2 1/2 inch wide strips of fabric onto your towel (about 6 inches apart) and then string your ribbon through. It’s really that easy. See the entire tutorial on Pin, Sew Press.

After I made my first one I raided my local Ross for inexpensive cute towels and bought a bunch for $1.49 each! I already had corresponding fabric scaps and ribbon. These are so fun to make.

And wouldn’t this make the cutest shower gift or housewarming? Everyone can use new cute kitchen towels! 🙂

$1.99 dish towel from Ross.

Also $1.99 from Ross..This is nice organic cotton.

And my cute little vintage one. Just $1.49 for a pack of 3.

So now this could become an obsession and everyone I know may receive this for Christmas. Oh how cute would a Christmas towel be?! See what I mean, this could go on and on. Hope you found this helpful!

Love it?

  3. These are fantastic Lina!!! I'm not a sewer at all…but I keep thinking one day I'm going to pull that stinkin' machine back out and give it another try. Maybe I've grown more patient with age? LOL

  4. So I was all excited to make my mirror turned chalkboard….took it all apart, painted the frame, painted the wood…was ready to distress it, when someone bought it to turn back into the mirror! Oh well! 🙂 Thanks for linking this to Thrifty Thursday! 🙂

  5. Your kitchen story is the story of my life as well! I am so excited about this solution, I have been trying to figure out what to do to keep the towels off the floor. They are super cute too!!
