Fat Quarter Shop Remix!

The Fat Quarter Shop is having a Remix blog hop today. A Remix is where they take one of their tutorials and mix it up with new fabrics. This kitchen hand towel is the project for today.

I’ve wanted/needed a couple of these for a while now so I jumped at the chance to try out their pattern. You can find the video tutorial here and the downloadable template here. I decided to go with a patriotic theme.

Here is the template.

I traced mine onto freezer paper using the sewing lines instead of the cutting lines. Then I ironed it to the back side of the top fabric.

I sewed next to the freezer paper.

After stitching, I cut mine out.

You’ll want to watch the quick video for all the details.

I learned a lesson about directional fabrics here. Oops!

One towel will make two of these so I went ahead and doubled up.

I didn’t add as many pleats to the towel as suggested in the tutorial and I probably would next time. I would also top stitch closer to the edge. I think it would be fun to make holiday versions of these.

A big thanks to Fat Quarter Shop for the free pattern!

Have a great day!

  3. Looks like a quick and easy pattern. Clever way to stitch around the freezer paper, which helps that quick finish!
