Thinking of making the swap to unpaper towels? Honestly, it’s easier than you think, and you can make your own reusable paper towels in 15 minutes!
– fabric scraps – thread – pins – sewing machine – scissors – iron ruler
Measure two pieces of 10” x 15” fabric (this can be an absorbent piece and a linen, two absorbent fabrics, etc – again, just use whatever you have on hand). Then cut.
Put your sides face-to-face and pin along the edge. Sew all sides 1/4" from the edge, but be sure to leave a small gap to turn the towel inside out!
Cut the corners so that when you flip the towel inside out, the corners lay nice and flat. Flip the towel inside out and iron along the edges. Now, you can sew the hole closed.
Measure and cut fabric scraps. Just like the sewed option, measure two pieces of 10" x 15" fabric, then cut.
Cut 3 pieces of hemming tape long enough for each side. Put your pieces face-to-face with the hemming tape just on the edge.
Iron the pieces together on only 3 of the sides, leaving a smaller side open. Check the instructions that come with your hemming tape.
