Make A Potholder Towel Topper
This is one of my favorite crafts to make, because not only is it inexpensive, it is also used on a daily basis. These also make great craft show/fair items.
What you need:
How to make it:
1. Cut the towel in half. Thread your needle, and make a fairly loose running stitch from one edge of the towel to the other.
2. Once you have your running stitches in place, slowly gather the top of the towel until it is the width of your potholder. Pin it in place to the back of the potholder using the straight pins.
3. Stitch the towel to the potholder, making sure to not stitch all the way through to the front. I used a simple back stitch, only stitching through the back layer of the potholder.
4. Now you want to fold the top of the potholder towards the back to make a flap wide enough to fit around the handle of your oven door. Take note of your design on the front as well. You don't want to fold it over so much you ruin the design on the front of the potholder.
Sew a button onto your potholder so the hanging loop can fasten to it. Make sure to not sew through the front of the potholder. You will have to angle your need quite a bit to stitch only on the back layer.
That's it! Now hang your new creation on your oven door!
**Note: I recommend hand washing these, and laying them flat to dry.**
