    What’s the name of your machine

    I like how you explain the steps. May I ask where you purchase your towels? Seems like a lot of the ones Im buying get wonky after the first wash.

    Great demostration!

    Well done

    I think I missed something. In step 5 when you do the pinch and pin, do you only sew the sides? Do you sew the top again? Once you sew the sides, you just take the pins on the top out?

    This is a Great Basic Pattern for All Occasions for Gift Giving. Making some Potholders to match & adding a couple of Kitchen Utensils, your Favorite Recipe, etc.. makes a Great Bridal Gifts, as well.. 🥰💗

    Did you prewash your towel and fabric?

  12. Linda Abuhasou on January 17, 2023 at 4:00 am

    Love the video! How much did u pinch?

  13. Sis on January 17, 2023 at 4:09 am

    I love this

  14. Elizabeth Manzione on January 17, 2023 at 4:14 am

    Did you pre-wash the fabric and the towel beforehand to prevent shrinkage? I’m a beginner, how much fabric do you ask the salesperson for let’s say 2 standard kitchen towels?

  15. Linda on January 17, 2023 at 4:15 am

    I think I’d just cut that seam off the bottom of the towel, or open it up before sewing the band onto it. Then I wouldn’t have to pinch it, would I? Love this idea; I might be trying it in the near future.

  16. Michele Heidekamp on January 17, 2023 at 4:15 am

    You pinned the top of the towel, with the pinch and pinned it as well . Did you sew that? I saw the sides, why did you pinch the top ?

    very nice job of explaining. So many possibilities. Thanks for sharing
