Stash-Busting Facecloth Tutorial

2016 February 5

Here’s an easy way to un-stash some of your smaller scraps, and make something useful to gift, or use yourself. These faux-mitred-corner facecloths are quick and easy, and each uses up an 10″-14″ scrap of quilting cotton or flannel. Just grab a towel from your closet or your local store and start sewing!

After a few slower ones for practice, I was able to sew up a facecloth in only 10 minutes – cutting included! There are so many uses for these – baby shower gifts, part of a Spa basket, Spa/Pool party goodie bags, kids’ facecloths…


One 8″ – 12″square of towel  (8″ is baby size, 12″ is average size)
One square of scrap quilting cotton or flannel, 2″ larger than the towel
Removable fabric marker
Ruler/straight edge
Sewing machine and accessories


Exciting news today – the winner of the latest giveaway!
