Fabric unpaper towel roll

Published January 30, 2015 by Fi-B

I decided to make some cloth towels to use instead of using paper towels all the time. And this is how they look on my paper towel holder.


This is the tutorial I followed to make them:

I bought two fabrics from my local lincraft store. And some microfibre terry towelling from http://www.gbau.com.au as this is a good cleaning and absorbent fabric.

I took my current paper towel size as a base so I knew it would fit on my current holder. It wasn’t square but rectangle so I had to keep that in mind when adding the snaps to join together. I made 10 so cut that many of each fabric. I then pinned together and sewed around leaving enough gap to turn inside out


I then turned out and top stitched around the edges and enclose the open section. I also sewed diagonally from each corner to the opposite to help the towel keep it’s size when washing.

I then added snaps using my snap machine and snap press from http://www.snapsautralia.com and rolled them around each other.
Things to keep in mind:
Make sure snaps are done on correct sides as it’s a rectangle and right way around so they match up and sit under each other nicely.


Now they look so good not sure if I want to use them
