What! These Ruffled Hanging Dish towels are a great addition to any kitchen and prettyeasy to make with ready made potholder and flour sack towels. I love that they are so easy and fast to make so you can make soe for any Holiday or how about a house warming gift or hostess gift and I hate to sew buttonholes so this is a great idea to use the tab that comes on the potholder to just put button through. I love this easy tutorial. A big Thank You for this one.

Attaching a ready-made potholder to the top of the gathered tea towel or flour sack towel is a very creative idea. Saves a bit of time in assembling the hanging towel which is great to have in the kitchen. I like the ruffles and they seem easy to do, especially when the ruffled edges are just surged.

I made some of these hanging dish towels (without the ruffles) for our boat..they are great for wiping hook them on to the seat or steering wheel. You never have to search for anything to wipe your hands with. We have a wet one on both our seats as well, one for wiping our hands and one for drying husband loves them!!!
