Today's DIY is not only a fun easy one, but a very helpful one as well! Nothing infuriates me more (slight exaggeration...only slight though) when you have a towel on your oven handle and it looks all disheveled and hanging on by a meer corner of the fabric. It looks bad friends. Just say no to disheveled looking oven towels from here on out because this tutorial is going to make your life better all around. The grass will seem greener, the flowers will smell prettier, and that leftover piece of 4th of July pie you had for breakfast won't affect your diet at all...(maybe that's just wishful thinking, but  a girl can wish right)?

Here are the supplies you will need:

I like to use the linen/tea towel type towels for this project. I bought this one, and this pack of 4. Wouldn't this one make a pretty one though?
~Fabric Fusion Velcro
I bought mine at JoAnn's with a 40% off coupon. I like to use the fabric fusion because anytime I can get out of sewing I take it! Feel free to use whatever your are comfortable with.
~Pom-Pom Trim (optional)
I bought mine at JoAnn's as well. Buy this stuff by the spool it is much cheaper than buying it by the yard. One spool will cover two towels.
~Ironing Board/Surface
~Push Pins if you are using trim
~Timer (optional)
I used a timer for when I was ironing on the velcro (I guess you could say I was too lazy to count ;) ).

Let's get started!

Couldn't be easier or more life changing right? No more breaking your back picking up fallen towels. No more looking aimlessly around trying to find something to dry your hands with. Life is good ;). Here are some more pics of the towels in action:

Hope you enjoyed this one. It has been a fun project to work on and put together. If you might be wondering if the fusible velcro holds up it has for me so far. I made a set of towels previously and all of the velcro has survived several washes. Just make sure when you wash them to fasten the velcro before throwing them in the washer. Also if you are making or have made some towels with the pom-pom trim I would wash them in cold water the first couple of times just in case their is some color fastness issues.

As always if you have any questions or comments about this tutorial please let me know. I'm always happy to help!
