Hanging Dishtowels

More fabric fun.... I love making these hanging towels.  I bought some nice towels at Costco, and got two for the price of one since these are cut in half.  I had fun bringing out some of my fabric stash to coordinate with the color on the towels. This towel pattern is really a good one. I used some mesh stabilizer that I would normally iron over the back of an embroidery design to cover the thread ends but it works wonderfully to enhance the fabric thickness.   Instead of a buttonhole and button, these are secured with a small strip of Velcro. You can find this fun and easy pattern here: http://kleiosbelly.wordpress.com/2010/01/04/christmas-prezzies-6-1-for-you/.
