|Anybody know the name of this floral fabric? - I want more!|
While I can sew anything.. from jeans to couture clothing I really like simple sewing best. I find it very zen and happy so that is why I love doing dishtowels. So simple, so fun and so practical!
While sometimes I start with pre-made towels and just gussy them up I do like to buy Huck Toweling when I can find it to make my own. For those not in the know- Huck toweling is a white cotton fabric with a distinctive weave and bound length ends making it perfect for custom length cuts of toweling to decorate as you choose.
I always wash my huck 2x in hot and dry on hot to get out all the shrinkage.. it's tough stuff.. go ahead and use it for real!
There are about a million ways to do dishtowels-
Adding a fun Monogram to a dishtowel
Scrappy bunting dish towel
Ribbon dish towels - swoon!
Adding a crochet edging for a hand made look
Ruffle and thread art- what more could you want from a towel?
Really the choices are just about endless and they make perfect gifts so you can feel totally guiltless about make a whole stack of them real soon!
How are your dishtowels looking?
