A quick cheap make

Kitchen Towels, originally uploaded by indiaeden.

Take ten Ikea towels, (Nackten, 19p each), Two fat quarters of your fave fabrics, plus a swatch of co ordinating fabric. (I've used my Blue Dahlia fabrics.)

Cut each fat quarter into five equal strips to fit the short edge of each towel. Press under 5mm all the way around and stich to your towel using any stitch you fancy. Use the scraps left over, (and the swatch of co ordinating fabric) to make hanging loops, and decorative labels.

Quick, cheap, and now I have pretty kitchen towels all ready for the kitchen we ordered today. (so exciting!)

Don't be shy, say hello!
