I halfway-made some kitchen washcloths and towels this week ...
Halfway, because I made towels & washcloths out of tablecloths.
The thrift store was having a sale, so I got a couple of tablecloths for a dollar each. (Or was it a dollar fifty? Either way ...)
I liked the feel, the weight, the little bit of texture, and the 100%-cotton-ness. And I liked the price!
Not needing any tablecloths, though, and not being able to leave well-enough alone, I decided to make them into kitchen towels and washcloths. (In a previous blog post, I mentioned doing something similar last year. Other kitchen linens are mentioned here and here.)
Handy-dandy serged edges for all.
I made a half-dozen washcloths AND a half-dozen kitchen towels from EACH tablecloth!
I love my new kitchen towels & washcloths - AND I love the price! Since each tablecloth yielded a dozen items, the price was way better than even the cheapest kitchen linens out there. LOVE IT!
