Kitchen towels, which would make a super cute hostess gift. I think I cut it just right down the center and the reason I do that is that, if you look at the finished kitchen towel like a tea towel like this, all four sides are finished. They're already been hemmed for you. They may have some type of embellishment, so that way, you don't have to worry about finishing those edges. Now, if we chop it right down the center you'll see that the other three sides are done and on the other one they're done as well. So we take advantage of that, so we can crank through the project a little bit faster, okay, so here are the ones that I've made from this one tea towel. You can see, I chopped it in half this edge is finished.
This edge is finished, and this one is on the raw edge where you cut is the side that we're going to go ahead and gather this up. Because if you look, this part is a little bit more narrow than obviously the full width of our cut. This is what you're going to need. The fabric that you'll be using you'll want to cut out two of these units. Now, if you're using the kind of a really lightweight fabric, I would recommend using some type of lightweight fusible interfacing on the back, maybe like a pail on shape flex. I like to use a lot of starch, so I find that for me that kind of works for this quickie project. I am layering these two up, pretty sides touching, so we can get ready to sew them up and what I'm going to do here is show you kind of a little trick that helps make it easier. In the next step.
I've placed two pins right here head over to the ironing board. I'm going to flip the bottom edges in about 3/8 of an inch just like a little bit bigger than a quarter inch and we're going to press that in place. Now the pins are holding my fabric steady, so I can flip it over and that way I don't really have to measure with a hemming tool or anything. I just can look to see where the fold is on the bottom, one that I just halved and that way you end up with both perfectly turned under. So you know they measure exactly what you need, which is that part is going to be key. When we go to tuck in our towel and top stitch it want to make sure that you're stitching through all the layers, the top fabric, the towel fabric and then also the backing fabric.
