Farmhouse Hanging Kitchen Towel Tutorial

I am excited to show you how to make one of my kitchen essentials-an oven hanging dish towel. I use these all the time and they are super easy to make. So I decided to show you how simple this really is!

First gather your materials- a needle, thread, scissors, pins, a sewing machine,a button, pot holder (I recommend the ones with the hook in the middle to keep it simple) and a dishtowel.


I first iron the dishtowel to get rid of all the folds.

Next I find the center by folding the dish towel in half. Then along that middle fold line run a gathering stitch and gather!

Once gathered, I place the dish towel on top of the pot holder as shown in the picture. (With right sides together and with the middle of the pot holder aligned with the middle of the dish towel.) Note: Make sure that the hanging tab will be at the top of your dish towel.

Then I sew the dishcloth and pot holder together.

Once sewn, I flip the pot holder/dish towel combo over (it should look like the picture above with the loop being at the top)

Your dish towel should now drape nicely from the bottom of your pot holder. Fold your pot holder in half once more to find where you should place your button. This will depend on how long the hanging tab is that came with your pot holder. Then sew it on firmly.

I placed mine about 1/2 inch down from the top

Your hanging dish towel is now ready to be placed on your oven bar!

Like I said, it's so easy and I really do love using them. They come in so handy and add a nice touch to the kitchen.

    I make these all the time for friends and family, but I make my own pot holders so I get one of a kind towels. Can use wash cloths to make shorter ones to hag shorter on stove, one ice chests, or on your belt when working outside. These are good for the bathroom where children don't hand the hand towels back up.

    I make these too and embroider the towel.
