Kitchen Towels

I finally finished sewing the kitchen towels for my Mom and mailed them yesterday to her.  This is a great project to use those leftover pieces of fabric.  And, my towels always seem to find their way around my kitchen instead of staying in one spot so maybe this will help if I make some for myself.

Here is a link to another sewer whose towels were posted on Pinterest where I found this project:

I ended up using a layer of flannel inside of the cotton prints (I actually repurposed a gently used flannel pillowcase that we had here).  I thought of using interfacing but did not know how it would hold up amidst the constant washing. 

This would be a great beginner sewing project and a nice gift idea for those practical people in your life!
