Pomegranate and Chicken Dish Towels

For a quick sewing project these dish towels from Spoonflower are fun to make.  The towels are printed on their linen cotton canvas ultra fabric and are nice and sturdy. The fabric softens after washing and has a nice crinkle look from the linen.  They get softer with each washing.

Press the towels with a hot iron and trim all the loose threads.  

Square the edges with a rotary cutter and mat.  The edges can be pretty uneven and I had to cut 1/2" off one edge to make them even.  Press the edge of the fabric in 3/8" twice.    Do this on all the sides.  Since it is a thick fabric I wanted to make mitered corners.  Here is a great how to video from creativebug on how to make them. 

After the mitered corners are finished fold the hem down where the pressing lines are and sew an edge stitch around the towel.  

Finished hem with mitered corners.    

Finished tea towels.  Here are links to the towels in my Spoonflower shop
if you'd like to make either of them. 

Finished and ready to display or gift to someone.  I'll be sending the Pomegranate towel to my mom since she kindly gave me the recipe to use in the design.  
Thank you, mom.
