Remember going to Grammas house and seeing these on the oven or fridge door? Ever wondered how they make those?
I always have a towel on the fridge door because… well, that’s what you do, right? When I’m done with the dishes I dry my hands on that hand towel. Well I was thinking, I wonder if I could find a pattern for making the towel topper so when I dry my hands it doesn’t come off all the way.
Well I found one and you are welcome.
My search brought me to YouTube which has a full 22 minute video of how to make it from sewing the chain into the towel with the yarn, crocheting all of the rows, making the button and the button hole and then finishing it off. It’s really not that difficult and it looks so good.
The video on YouTube also has a link for the full instructions which is over on the Art of Crochet by Teresa blog on Blogger. The video is over on YouTube via the Art of Crochet channel.
My problem is that I have carpel tunnel syndrome which means my hands get numb very quickly and I feel a very painful pinch in my palms so I shouldn’t really work on this. The problem is that I love to crochet so that’s a huge bummer for me. I mean, I can see the endless possibilities with this, I can make a topper for a towel for every holiday and for every season. Like in the summer I can have the sunflower or watermelon towel, Christmas can be the Christmas towels, Halloween, Easter… If there is a towel for everything then you bet that I would want to make a towel topper for that time of the year.
I found like 4 Christmas hand towels in a drawer too that would look so awesome with the vintage Christmas yarn that I have that has the mixed red, white and green colors in it.
Maybe some day I might be able to do this but for now I can’t but that doesn’t mean I can’t share the pattern and video with all of you crafty people so besides the link above which you can view to rate, comment and subscribe to, here is that video.
