My favorite things to sew are always things that are useful in some way. Today I decided to round up all of my favorite tutorials for the sewing kitchen items. A few of these are not favorites so much as wishful thinking. I will get to these, I will…
Fort Worth Fabric Studio has the tutorial for these hanging towels that I absolutely love. I have tried a few versions of hanging towels but these are my favorite. You can change the length of the towel based on what you like or just cut the towel in half so you can get two from one towel. This tutorial is easy to follow and will give you great results.
Microfiber Dish Mat
This tutorial is actually one of mine but you’ll love it. I have never been able to find a microfiber dish mat that actually fits my countertop, I know I can’t be the only one with this problem. This dish mat is super easy to make and now I can use the entire counter top for dishes.
The Fabric Mill wrote the tutorial for these Easy Hot Pads. I have finally found the reason my pot holders never turn out. You need Insul-Bright and cotton batting. I have never thought to add the cotton batting before. I probably shouldn’t have shared that embarrassing bit of information…
Paperless Paper Towels
Zona Mom wrote the tutorial for these awesome paperless paper towels and napkins. I haven’t gotten around to trying this one yet but I have the flour sack towels picked out. I may try adding a button hole at the top of each towel to hang them. I like the idea of going paperless but I don’t think it’ll work unless it’s just as easy to grab a fabric towel as it would be to grab a paper towel.
There are plenty of tutorials out there for paperless Paper towels. I picked this one because it’s crazy easy and cheap. Replacing paper towels is going to require a lot of cloth towels so they need to be easy and cheap.
Kitchen Wet Bag
Do It Your Self Danielle wrote the tutorial for this kitchen wet bag. This is a great idea that I never would have thought of. A wet bag would really help with not only paperless paper towels but also with dish rags. I have a tendency to just leave them on the counter, not exactly ideal. I will definitely be making a couple of these to go with my paperless paper towels.
I hope you found something perfect to sew for your kitchen. Sometimes you have to make it yourself to get what you want.
Please excuse me while I make my way to target to grab some flour sack towels to get started on these paperless paper towels. My husband will be thrilled. 😊
