You know that ugly dish towel in the kitchen we always reach for? Well, I always seem to tell myself that I’m going to replace it for something special but never seem to make it happen. Today, that is all about to change. Just take a look at these pretties!
These dish towel patterns are so inspiring and now more than ever, I am determined to add that special touch of handmade to my kitchen. Plus, the timing is perfect since I signed up for the February SWAP with Scrappy Girls Club. We are exchanging 2 tea towels and I sure hope my partner likes mine.

10. Stamp It Up!
Add a splash of color to your kitchen with these organic ideas.
The everyday dish towel is sometimes called a tea towel in my house. I have a ton of vintage ones that range from family pass downs to funky ones I picked up during my 127 Sale adventures. We use them for just about everything from dressing a table to drying dishes. Dish towels are easy to make and a great quick hitter project that is perfectly sized for fat quarters.

Love these towel ideas! I just wish I knew how to sew good, I only do basics. For those not crafty I personally love making handmade gifts. I enjoy making kitchen towels, crochet hanging dish scrubbies and portable hanging towel holders.

I wanted to make kitchen towels & potholders for a Christmas present. I need a pattern & a list of supplies for both of them.
