Why is it that kitchen accessories need to be replaced so often? I guess I shouldn’t complain because I love to sew cute things for my kitchen. Out with the old aprons, potholders, and dishtowels and in with pretty new ones!

Here are my 25 favorite (and free!) patterns and tutorials to freshen up your kitchen. Besides aprons, hot pads, and dishtowels, you’ll find cloth napkins, a mixer cover, bowl cozies, and more!
