Kitchen Hand Towels

After looking at my hand towels and realizing that it’s been forever since I made me some, I decided to break out my handy pattern I found on The Creamer Chronicles a couple years ago. The pattern has never failed me, but I did decide to fine tune for my needs. I basically made it to where I could sew right on the paper to make sure I could get nice straight lines without pinning to fabric too much.

The updated pattern does not have seam allowance so I put a few notes in as a reminder.


  • Measures 6.5 x 9.5 in. finished 7 x 10.75 in. unfinished
  • I cut the flannel 1 inch shorter (7 x 9.75 in. )because of the fold.
  • There is some scraps when using this method, put them in you paper piecing bin to use later.
  • Use shorter stitch length so the paper rips off easily.
  • Baste your towels before tucking into the handle, this will help it stay in place.
  • I used some left over flannel for the middle section. Your fabric should be right sides together, then the flannel on top.
