These simple farmhouse style DIY linen dish towels are SO quick + easy to make, even the newest of sewers can whip one up in just minutes!
Is there anything more lovely in its simplicity…
Than pure linen?
Which is why I just couldn’t resist ordering up a big old pile of the softest linen in all sorts of beautiful colours (here’s where I found mine in case you were wondering).
I’ve got some BIG plans for all of this (as I promised my hubs when he opened the package). A long, long list of beautiful, simple, farmhouse style sewing projects that I just can’t wait to share.
And today, I’m so excited to be kicking things off with these lovely linen dish towels.
They’re so soft + beautiful, and of course, practical too.
And best of all, they’re so quick + easy to make.
DIY Linen Dish Towel Tutorial
one. Cut a 18″ x 26″ rectangle of linen.
two. Sew a 1/2″ seam all around wrong side of fabric. I don’t even bother pinning the fabric before sewing, but just eyeball the seam, folding as I sew – I think the slight imperfections that come up just add to the rustic charm, but you might choose to pin your seam to keep your seam really straight all the way around.
three. Fold a 5″ length of ribbon over itself and attach it against the wrong side of the fabric, in centre of one side to create a loop to hang the towel. Face the top of the ribbon loop towards the middle of the dish towel and be sure to sew over and then backstitch the entire width of the ribbon to ensure it is securely attached.
