I recently found some kitchen towels that I loved. I got them home and opened them up, and they were HUGE. So it was time for a little fix…
Yep, I cut them in half. Which is even awesomer because it gave me four towels instead of two. And they’re normal sized. This is a super-simple project, so even if you claim you’re not a sewer, try this!
Cut the towel in half. Then you need to hem the raw edge. So iron it about 1/4 an inch. Then turn that under again another 1/4 an inch and iron it into place. This gives a nice finished edge:
Then you will just sew along that edge to hold down where you ironed:
That’s it! Look at that nice hem – you would think it had come like that.
Awesome set of towels – love their look and they work great with my kitchen:
Meanwhile, spiderman is spending his free time crafting (painting the end of a dowel rod orange so it’s a wand). If only he would pick up that mega mess of a craft room…
