Bar Towel Toppers

October 6, 2019 No comments yet

Here are several Dollar Store bar towels that I have added towel toppers to. I love the thick and absorbent towels but they are a odd width to do a normal double-layer crocheted towel topper. I tried this first one where I didn’t fold over the towel and just crocheted the towel topper along the top edge. It makes for a longer kitchen towel and not sure if I like it or not. This towel topper was crocheted using the waffle towel topper pattern.

Next I folded the towel in half lengthwise. I then added a crocheted towel topper through both layers with the fold on the left hand side. This created a nice thick double layered towel but again I’m not sure about the foldline being on the side.

Here is a closeup of the crocheted towel topper which was created using the pointed handle towel topper pattern.

So what do you think about these Dollar Store bar towel projects? I’d love to hear people’s thoughts and

Towel Toppers for Charity

November 12, 2018 1 comment

Crocheted towel toppers are an excellent charity item. They are quick to crochet and are a desired item for charity fundraisers. They also make excellent gifts.

I have several different free crochet patterns for making towel-toppers. Here is a link to all of my towel topper patterns.

The next few towels use the pointed-handle towel topper pattern. These dollar store towels which once you add the crocheted towel-topper, really make a nice handmade gift.

Another is one of the new Christmas towels at the Dollar Tree, which makes a great candidate for a towel topper as shown here. The jingle bell closure adds a bonus for a Christmas-themed gift.

Next is a Fall themed towel that I got on clearance.

Kitchen Towel Toppers

January 24, 2018 No comments yet

I crocheted several kitchen towel toppers last month for gifts. Now that Christmas is over, I can share them here on my blog. It seems that everyone enjoys receiving these handmade towels so every year I crochet a few of them for friends, co-workers, and family. I do try and not give them every year to the same people as I don’t want them to get tired of receiving them.

My towels are double layered as I fold the towels in half and then crochet through both layers to add the tops. The nice thing is that there is no cutting or sewing needed to begin crocheting the towel topper onto the towel.

Holiday Crocheted Towel Topper

December 17, 2017 3 comments

I am busy finishing up a few last minute Christmas gifts. I love crocheting towel toppers and using holiday towels make wonderful gifts. Here are a few I crocheted using the double-layer method. You fold over the towel and crochet through both layers to create a useful kitchen towel and an attractive gift.

These were crocheted using the free pointed handle towel topper pattern. I added a jingle bell for the closure in place of a button.

These are fun and quick projects. You can crochet the complete towel topper in just a matter of a few hours. So if you are in need of a last minute gift, consider hand making a gift which will be long remembered after a store bought item.

Easter Towel Topper

April 15, 2017 3 comments

I found this pretty Easter flowered towel at Shopko and turned it into a crocheted Easter gift. I folded it in half and crocheted a pink towel topper onto the kitchen towel.

I used the free crochet pattern called double layered waffle towel topper pattern. The only change I made was for the extra large pink button I added for the closure. Because it was so large, I chained 3 stitches for the buttonhole. I then crocheted a few extra stitches into the buttonhole on the next row to secure the large opening for the button. It worked out great and the button fits through the hole nicely.

I love this double layered, no cutting or sewing towel topper. They make such nice gifts and work up super fast. So if you need a quick gift idea, check out this crochet project.

Crocheted Pointed Towel Toppers

I have been on a towel topper crocheting frenzy lately. Here are several of my recent finish offs to share. These were done without sewing and just crocheting into the top layer of the towel. The first one is crocheted in blue cotton with the towel topper added along the top edge. The towel is folded in half with the topper then added which creates a double layered towel.

Next is a towel also folded in half and green cotton used to add the towel topper.

These towel toppers were made using my free crocheted pointed handle towel topper pattern. They require no cutting and no sewing of the towels. Several people have asked me about the number of stitches to do along the top. The answer is
