No Sew Patriotic Kitchen Towel
I have become obsessed with making festive holiday themed kitchen towels! Recently, I made a Valentine’s Day kitchen towel, a St. Patrick’s Day kitchen towel, and an Easter Kitchen Towel so I thought I’d keep it up and make a No Sew Patriotic Kitchen Towel too! I went back to Jo-Ann Fabrics to see if I could find some patterns I like to make my own. I made it similar to the Easter towel because the permanent fabric tape worked better than the fusible web. Here is how I made it.
- Plain kitchen towels
- Fabric of choice
- Permanent Fabric tape
- Ironing board
- Spray Starch
I found two red and blue patterns that I really liked and thought looked nice together for the fourth. I wanted some different shades of blue and red rather than the traditional bold red and blue. The fabric quarters were again great for this project.
I also had these kitchen towels from the other kitchen towels I made. I washed them in the washing machine and dried them before I started.
I cut out my fabric in strips. I ironed them to make it easier to align them on my towel and I used some spray starch as well.
Next I cut the permanent fabric tape and aligned it onto the towel. It was a little tasking to remove the peel off sticker, but it all worked out. I found this way to be much easier than using the fusible web. It seems to stick better too and is also much quicker! Here’s the AFTER! This would make a great hostess gift.
You can make them in so many different patterns and colors to fit any style or holiday.
