Basic Sewing Supplies
STEP 1: GATHERING TOWEL
The towel will need to be gathered so it is the same size as the potholder. To do this, fold the towel in half lengthwise and press with an iron. The crease will be the gathering line.
* Sew a long basting stitch across the towel using the crease as a guide.
* Gather the towel until it is the same size as the potholder.
STEP 2: LOCATE MIDDLE OF POTHOLDER
The potholder loop will determine how the towel will be attached to the potholder. Make sure the loop is at the top. If there is no loop, you can make a loop with scrap fabric or ribbon.
* With a ruler, find the center of the potholder.
* Mark a line along the center using a quilters marking pencil.
STEP 3: SEWING POTHOLDER TO TOWEL
* Place the towel right side up on a work surface.
* Center the potholder over the towel gathering.
* Pin them in place.
* Set the sewing machine to a standard stitch length and sew along the line marked on the potholder, back tacking at the beginning and end.
STEP 4: MARKING AND ATTACHING BUTTON
* Fold the potholder in half with the loop at the top.
* Fold loop down to see where to place button. Mark with a marking pencil.
* Sew on button to the font of the potholder by hand.
Viola! The hanging kitchen towel is complete and ready to hang from stove handle, near the sink or any other convenient location.
