Flour sack towels are the best! inspiration from Amanda Jean. I hang them on my oven door. They make a nice splash of color in my kitchen and are a good conversation piece. They are mostly for looks cuz they're so pretty, but I'm not going to stress myself out by trying to keep them white.
I purchased these 33"x38" flour sack dish towels from amazon. The seller had lots of good reviews. I've since washed mine and love how soft and absorbent they are.
I wanted them to be a little more rectangular in shape, so I trimmed off about 6 1/2 inches off the longer
This is a great scrap-buster project, or you can use a mini charm pack.
spread out your squares, these are 2 1/2, but any size will work.
These are more scrappy, but I stayed with the 2 1/2 in wide strip.
Sew your pieces together
press 1/4 inch along one edge (this will end up being your top edge on your finished towel)
Since each towel and each strip are a little different in length, I wait to press the end until I've pinned the strip down, so that those 2 finished edges are more exact.
sew a 1/4 inch seam from the end of the top of your strip.
Flip your strip up and press. Top stitch close to the seam all the way around the strip.
