DIY Fall Kitchen Towel

This fall kitchen towel tutorial is festive and great for the holidays. The Sewing Room Channel tutorial only requires 5 items to make this towel, and I love how you can choose whatever fabric design to use. I think it’s nice to be creative with DIY sewing projects like these, and she does an amazing job coming out with great content for seasonal items. I always look out for her tutorials because they’re easy to follow along with. It’s inexpensive and you can buy a towel at the dollar store if you’re looking to save a couple of bucks. In conclusion, this would be a great project to work on too if you’re bored around the holidays with a couple of girlfriends.


  • 1 kitchen towel
  • 1/8 yd fabric for the ruffle
  • 1/8 yd fabric for applique
  • Pellon 2 sided fusible web
  • tear-away stabilizer or thin paper


First, to make your ruffle, lay the fabric down and leave it folded in half while cutting a strip that’s 3″ wide. Continue to watch The Sewing Room Channel tutorial for full instructions and directions.

Next, simply stitch in the middle of the fabric and the ruffle adds a nice finish to the Fall fabric towel.

Overall,  I think my favorite part of this towel is the ruffle on the bottom. It would be nice to have this towel in my kitchen for the holidays because I’m sure I would get compliments. I know kitchen towels can be pricey over time, but if you make your own, you have full power to pick the design. These are great ideas to customize a boring, plain towel into something more decorative. Plus, you can use this tutorial as a base for other designs and holidays.
