They did turn out fun and easy to make, although making 6 at one time was a bit more time consuming than I had anticipated. But it was well worth it, and the towels were well received gifts. They were also the gifts I was most proud of, other than a microwavable neck warmer I made for my husband.
To see the tutorial that I used (and perhaps make your own Stay-Put Kitchen Towels), click here. I decided not to add the decorative strip of fabric at the bottom of the towels like the tutorial shows. Echoing another blogger who also made these towels from this tutorial, I felt that it decreased the usable towel space a little too much. Enjoy!
