How To Make Reusable Fabric Paper Towels




Step 1: Cut your fabric into 9×13” rectangles

Step 2: With right sides together, pin or clip the pieces together, leaving a 3” gap for turning.

Step 3: Using a 1/2-inch seam allowance, sew around all 4 sides except for the gap.

Step 4: Clip off the corner and turn the square right side out. Using a pencil or chop stick, push out the corners.

Step 5: Iron flat and using a ¼ inch seam allowance, top stitch around all four sides of the square. This will also close your gap you used for turning.

Step 6:  To keep the square from twisting when you wash it, sew either an “X” or 3 lines across it.

Step 7: *Attach your Velcro to the 4 corners of each piece, making sure you attach the opposite pieces of the Velcro to the next piece of the towel so each snaps together.

When all are attached, roll them around your cardboard tube and slide them onto your paper towel holder. *If you don’t have or don’t want to use Velcro, just skip this step and stack these and use them that way. Whatever is easiest for you!

Instead of pulling out my ironing board, I prefer to use my pressing mat on small projects like this.
