85+ Kitchen Towel Sewing Patterns & Projects

Kitchen Towel Sewing Patterns

Kitchen towels are a great place to start sewing

A reader from Avignon, France asked me for some ideas on beginner sewing projects. She an aspiring sewist and I know she has just moved house. I suggested why not try some kitchen towel sewing patterns?

For our reader, I know that disposable kitchen towels are very, very expensive in France as they seem to be everywhere. So making her own kitchen towels can save a lot of money.

Also, making your own kitchen towels and using them in preference to disposable paper towels is good for the environment.

If you're a beginner sewist or even highly experienced in the art, you might want to have a try at making yourself or a friend a new set of kitchen towels.

Natural fibers are always more absorbent. Synthetic fibers such as polyester are just a kind of plastic, and they move liquids around instead of absorbing them.

I don’t see the grey towel with the embroidered lavender in the links? Is it not there or am I missing it?


For a quick and simple (although not as good looking as the ones shown here) sew 1.5 – 2 inch length of narrow twill tape to a corner of a towel. Hang that corner over a rod and pull the opposite corner through the tape. Your towel will stay in place.

I do this for my huge dish drying cloths that used to like falling on the floor.

What fabric do you recommend for towels.
I have used osnaberg, old terry cloth, homespun and linen types.
As well as purchased kitchen towels. Flour sacks are a good size and weight for embroidery.

HI Sherry, I actually like microfiber, easy to make and use, dries quickly and last longer.
