Sherpa Kitchen Towels

While doing some online browsing thru Etsy one day, I can across some Sherpa that was on sale.  The seller was advertising it to be used for baby diapers.  That sounded absorbent to me, so I thought it would work well for kitchen towels.  I then got lucky and found some kitchen prints on sale too.  I bought the Sherpa in blue and yellow and kitchen prints in blue limes, groceries and pears.  I already had the apple prints.

This was an easy and fast project.  I cut my rectangles at 17" X 13" for the prints and I cut the Sherpa 1 inch wider in both directions....

I stitched them together, turned them, re-pinned and top stitched....

They turned out really cute.  Family members have already claimed the pears.

It's also really bugging me that in these pictures, I did not notice that the pears are printed in one direction only and I did not turn them to have them facing in the right direction for the picture!

Scroll down to see who I have linked to this week.


  1. What a great idea, and they are so pretty, too.

  2. Your bright and cheerie towels really caught my eye at Quilt Story! Love the idea and might be tempted to "steal" it. I even have the lime fabric in my stash ;o))) Great job!

  3. These are awesome. Are you using it for a hand towel, or to dry dishes?

  4. Jeanette....I'm using them for both! Thanks for visiting my blog!
