do you have a pattern for a dish towel shaped like a like a little girls dress ? If not I do, and will try to get a picture to send to you.

Cannot get to this pattern its blocked

this pattern is showing blocked.......waste of time.

I made my first one today. I will make many more for last minute Christmas gifts. Thank you for the quick and easy pattern!

If you have an Adobe Reader Error just right click and give permission to download. I made a few of these last night and enjoyed the pattern. I did choose to make a few alterations. I made the tab longer and I gathered the towel rather than pleated it. I also put batting in the top piece to fill it out, and a decorative trim to make the stitching look nice.

I cannot get this pattern to print.I hAVE looked everywhere for thi hanging dish towel Please help

I was not able to download the handle pattern. Any trick to it?

I have wanted this pattern for so long; thank you so much

My friends and I were just talking about doing this as a craft day it looks perfect for what we want to do THANKS

Thank you sew much for the pattern. I work at a nursing home and some of the ladies wanted to make these for our activity kitchen and I was stumped on how to do this project.This was easy for them to do and they had a great time making them. Sorry I am not allowed to take pictures at work or I would send you a picture of the towels. Again thank you sew much!

I was given hand towels for my kitchen just like this made from a terry towel. I always have one hanging out. Now I know how it's done I can make the tea towels to match. A great idea for Christmas and school fund raising sales!

I love this idea using fabric, that way I can make them using the same fabric as my curtians, potholders,table runners, ect. and all will match

I love this idea but the only thing I am going to change is rather than buttons I am going to use snaps--as that would seem and easier way to take them off and put them back on

I have looking for a pattern using fabric rather than doing the crochet style. Love it! Many thanks.

I was taught how to make these towels back in the early 1970's when I became a bride. I was first taught to make them by crocheting the top tab. Later I saw them sewn. In crochet and sewing you can make them with a button or you can put ties at the top to tie them to a handle. Either way they are great! I've been married for 39 years and I still use them.

These things are addictive! Since I started using them in my kitchen I can hardly work in there if they aren't hanging around. Not just by the sink, but on the stove and fridge also.

After seeing similar towels in a store years ago I decided to go home & make my own. Well - I created MONSTERS. I cannot make these fast enough for friends and family members. They are great. I've only known of two people who weren't thrilled with them. Incidentally, I call them "knob towels."

o my god ilove that idea i will make these
