A Match Set

My daughter Deby loved my "Hanging Towel" and asked me to make her one to match her kitchen.  I bought the towel (set of 3) at a Home Goods store. I really didn't notice when I bought them, but the towels are huge.  I cut it and used the leftovers to make a matching potholder.
I pleated this towel so it would lay right. Besides it being a little shorter, I made it exactly like the first one.      For the potholder I used this tutorial found at  Sew WE Quilt and since Deby loves owls, I knew it would a perfect for a match set.

I made the shapes needed for the pattern on MS Publisher.
Cut the shapes out of different fabrics and used heat bond paper on the backs of each. I ironed them on, then stitched around all the pieces. 
After finishing both, I could not wait to give them to her.
She loves them and hung them up right away. 
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Very Cute with the matching owl potholder. I was telling my daughter about your towels the other day, saying how we need to make some. I love how they won't fall off the bar on the oven. Now it's just getting around to it.
