How the Stay-Put Kitchen Towels came about...

I found the basic design for my Stay-Put Towels while surfing the internet, hunting down gift ideas that I could create using my embroidery machine. As it would happen, the bulk of the work in creating these fun kitchen towels is just plain ol' sewing, LOL! After making a set for my kitchen, I began making sets for family and friends. (My husband now wonders when we will have more to use in our kitchen!) After selling them successfully at local craft fairs, I have decided to take them on-line and offer them to you. They make a great gift as we head into the holiday season, and are available for personalization.

Here is more info about the stay-put towels!

• ABOUT THE STAY-PUT TOWEL •
This is one kitchen towel that stays where you put it! With the simple threading of one end back through itself you don't have to worry about finding this towel on the floor. These towels are perfect for both drying dishes or quickly drying your hands. You can attach them to the oven, dish washer, or refrigerator handle. There are no buttons to lose or yarn to pull in this towel design making them an easy, worry-free addition to your laundry.

A set of Stay-Put Towels is a great addition to your kitchen or a gift. Since kitchen towels are a necessity for any household, established or just starting, these towels make a fantastic housewarming, wedding, or hostess gift! If you are looking for a specific color or theme, send me a convo. I can normally come up with a great pair of Stay-Put Towels that will match what you are looking for! I may even have them in stock, just not yet listed.

• CREATION PROCESS •
The towels and fabric I use are washed and dried before any sewing is done; you don't have to worry about shrinkage when you throw these beauties in with your normal laundry. The towels are also washed after assembly; so that they are fresh when they arrive in the mail. The fabric accent square is 100% cotton unless otherwise noted. The towel is micro fiber with germ fighting technology, and measures approximately 15 by 25 inches. Unless otherwise noted.

• PACKAGING •
Each order is labeled using a card-stock label and reusable ribbon. Before placing the items in the envelope for shipping, I enclose them in a sealed plastic bag to protect against any weather the package may encounter traveling from my studio to your location. Just one more step I take to ensure that the items you order arrive fresh and ready to use or give as gifts.

  1. How did I miss these? They are so darn cute!!!

    Do you do custom orders that don't cost a million dollars? I'd love something like them in a vintage housewife design.

    Depending on what you charge it may have to wait till after the hoidays, but would you email me? closertolucy@gmail.com

Quick Kitchen Curtain Tutorial

How comfortable with sewing are you?  Would you like to a quick and easy project that you can do yourself to create a window valance/ruffle out of any fabric you find?  Here you go!  There are only three lines of stitching in this project.  Very little measuring, and gorgeous results.

This project actually started almost two years ago, when I painted our current kitchen a pale ice blue we had left over from painting a bedroom.  To try something different, I painted the ceiling of the kitchen a deep, high-gloss navy.  You can see just a little bit of the ceiling in the finished curtain picture below.  As much as I adore the contrast in the paint colors, trying to find a ready made curtain for the kitchen has proven impossible.  Lots of kitchen curtains are to frilly, not the right color, too white, so on and so forth.  Did I mention too expensive?
So, when I brought home this fabric from Sewing Club and was trying to figure out what 'it' wanted to be, I decided it would be perfe…
