Hanging Kitchen Towels With Button Video Tutorial:
Learn how to sew towels to hang up with a button by watching this video. Click the play button to watch our full video tutorial below. If you'd rather have step-by-step instructions, keep scrolling to find the written tutorial and step-out photos.
Hanging Kitchen Towels With Button Pattern Instructions:
- Cut out towel bottom 7" wide by however long you desire (this tutorial shows a 7" x 18" piece.
Note: Be sure you already laundered your towel fabric - learn more with this video tutorial, How to Keep Fabric From Shrinking.
- Using a plate, round off the bottom of the terry cloth.
- Finish off by sewing bias tape around the edge of the towel. No need to do the top edge as that will be covered by the towel loop piece.
Note: It can be double fold or single fold, whichever you prefer. Learn more about bias tape with our guide, What is Bias Tape?
- Using the pattern provided, cut out 2 of the towel top pieces from your fabric of choice.

- Iron on interfacing to the long section of the top where button hole will go (wrong side).
- Iron bottom edge up 1/2". Use a seam allowance ruler to help if needed.
- Using a washable fabric marker, place your button where it will be attached on one of the top pieces and mark the top, bottom, and, with a ruler, the middle.
- On the other top piece, pre-sew the button in the correct place (where you marked your button hole on the other side piece).
- Clip the towel onto the side of the top that includes the button hole marking. Using a 1/2" seam allowance, sew together with a straight stitch, removing clips as you go. Use the crease you ironed earlier as your guide.
Note: The backside should be touching the right side so that you don't see the back of the bias tape (unless you used double-fold bias tape; then it won't matter).
- With right sides together, sew top together using a 1/4" seam allowance. Trim curves. Turn right side out. Press.
- Review your button hole marking to assure it will work. If not, re-mark. If so, then topstitch your towel top closed.
Note: To learn about topstitching, read through our guide and watch the video here: What is Topstitching? + How to Topstitch.
- Make button hole using your machine. Open it using a seam ripper.
Note: Learn more by reviewing our guide, How to Make a Button Hole on a Sewing Machine.
- Trim threads and you're finished.

I can't find the pattern also

If you are like me and can never find that perfect kitchen towel and search everywhere than this is for you also. I like something different and this buttoned kitchen towel is just the right one for me. This video is very well made. Angel speaks very clear and you can see everything she does. A very quick and easy project to get that kitchen towel you have always wanted. And I love the idea of the button it keeps the towel where you can always find it. You use to be able to buy these towels before. If you see a towel at the dollar store and like it than why not just use it and round off corners and then add the top fabric on it to make it even faster. Great tutorial.
