How to Sew  a Washcloth

Learn how to sew a washcloth by cutting up a hand towel. This beginner sewing project is great for saving money and the environment.


– hand towel with small stains or   holes – Optional: bias binding – Sewing tools – Sewing machine – Optional: serger

Cut all the edges and hems off of the towel. 

I finished my five washcloths in five  different ways

Serger finish  with curved corners

This was by far the fastest way to finish the washcloth. The curves made the corners easy and fast.

Bias Binding with  Square Corners

This version looks the best, and it keeps the washcloth the largest.

Bias Binding with Curved Corners

I love the look of this washcloth, and it looks the second best.
