Here is the post I did for the blog swap over at Somewhat Simple.
We have a huge problem over at our house.
Our dishtowels are always ending up on the floor and it is enough to drive a girl crazy!
I have solved our problem by making these awesome hanging dishtowels.
They would make great family, friend, neighbor, or co-worker gifts!
Here is what you will need:
The first thing you are going to do is baste across your dishtowel.
Pull on both threads out of your machine making a long tail of thread.
Then set your machine to a "0" stitch width and a "4'' stitch length.
Sew across you dishtowel right down the middle.
When you are done sewing do not cut your thread!
Lift your presser foot and pull your dishtowel out making another long tail of thread and then cut.
Grab a hold of one thread while gathering your dishtowel until it is all gathered and the same width as your potholder.
Pin your potholder to your dishtowel.
Then sew across your potholder right down the middle.
Make sure to switch your stitch length back to "2.5" so you aren't basting anymore.
Take the bottom of your potholder and bring it up to meet the top.
The last step is to sew a button to the front of your potholder.
You are done!
How cute would it be to make a few of these in coordinating color, tie a cute ribbon around them, and give them as a gift in a set!?
Have a Merry Christmas everybody!
