This is another easy sewing project that I managed to put together in about 30 minutes. Ok, realistically it took me about 2 hours, but I was making lasagna, eating Easter candy and fixing a mystery problem (read: user error) with my sewing machine. It’s hard work staying at home :) I’m sure you have seen these before, and if not, there are tutorials all over the Internet. I know what I’ve seen, and it’s the underside of my mom’s sink, so she got one for Mother’s Day, and my mother-in-law got one too! Here is how I made mine:
1/2 width elastic (cut 7 in strip)
Ribbon or small piece of fabric for loop
Cut a 7 in piece of elastic and pin to one of the short side of your dish towel. I started at one side and stretched it across, pinning it the whole way. When you are done, it should be bunchy.
Sew the elastic onto your towel. I sewed a bit, stretched a bit, sewed a bit, stretched a bit, etc.
Using the long sides of the towel, sew right sides together. Then, turn it right side out.
Some people sew a piece of elastic into the top…not me. That’s extra work. You can also sew a piece of ribbon or string to the un-elastic top of your holder so you can hang it. My towel already had a little hook on it, so I took advantage of it.
Stuff with bags and hang.
Well, that’s it. The underside of my sink has never looked so organized (not that anyone ever looks down there). I’m going to go enjoy looking at my new creation and try to figure out why it’s ok for strangers to pet my belly…yeah…that happened today…
Have a good one!
