    Easy Way To Make Hanging Dish Towels

    I love hanging dish towels in my kitchen but I hate making them because the pattern I had was kind of complicated, cutting binding on the bias and cutting a pattern for the top. I knew there had to be an easier way and I found one. The link is below.

    I like that. I'm always looking for easier ways to make hanging towels. Here's another option I've found:

    I went to the first link and put "towel" in the search box and found the tutorial. It's a good one!

    Both seem like too much work for towels that really get used in my kitchen.....along with the whole one I have nearest the sink draped over a ceramic duck head...made by me in a past hobby life, I have two of those half towels strategically placed attached to cabinet handles...one near stove, other under working counter, but I have crocheted across cut edge, worked up a double crochet, folded over handle and attached button......much faster for me that those shown.....

    If the 1st link gives you a blank page (like it did me), try "refreshing" or "reloading" the page. It worked for me.

    I use a (bought) hot pad and t-towel. Fold your hot pad with the hanging loop at the top, and mark the fold line. Take the t-towel and fold in sides to fit the fold line on the hot pad. Find the center of the t-towel and lay the center marked line on the hot pad on the center of the t-towel, and sew. On the opposite side of the hot pad, sew a button. To hang, put hot pad on oven handle and button it on!
    This is real easy and I make a lot for the church bazaar.

    Thanks for the links. I got the second one right away, the first one I got a blank page but I highlighted the URL and hit enter and then it came up.

    I love hanging towels and in the past made TONS of them for
    my family members.

    Personally for my own kitchen I DON'T use them because I change
    my kitchen towels sometimes up to 3-4 (maybe more) times a day
    if I am in there cooking, for me it is a matter of I hate the thought
    of cross contamination of the food I am preparing/cooking.

    I have no idea where this "issue" started for me, but any towel or
    dishcloth gets tossed to the laundry rather quickly (depending on what I am doing).
