The dish towels in my kitchen are always falling on the floor. It’s so annoying! I tried a simple and inexpensive hack to keep my kitchen towels hanging and off the floor. This hack is not only useful, it’s pretty, too!
Easy Hanging Kitchen Towel Hack
I only needed some simple dish towels and pot holders (with their own loops) for my project.
I started out by folding the dish towel in thirds so it was about the same width as the pot holder. I then folded both the dish towel and pot holder in half (from top to bottom) to form a slight crease. This helped me to find the center of both. I pinned the centers of the pot holder and dish towel together, right sides together. (The pattern that I want to show on my dish towels faced up, while I put the good sides of the pot holders facing down.)
I used my sewing machine to stitch across the width of each pot holder. (To secure a towel to a pot holder.) If you don’t have a sewing machine, you can easily hand stitch this part.
I picked out a button from my craft stash. I hand sewed the button to the pot holder (on the “right” or good side), on the half of the pot holder that doesn’t have the loop. You might want a large needle and or thimble for this step. It can be difficult to poke the needle through the quilted layers of the pot holder. I pricked myself once or twice. Ouch!
I then buttoned my new hanging dish towel over the handle of my kitchen’s oven. Ta da! My towels won’t end up on the floor anymore!

I’ve recently tried a new way of making hanging kitchen towels, if you’d like to take a look! (You can find my other DIY hanging kitchen towels in my Hometalk profile.)
