Anna came up with this a few months ago - double-sided kitchen cloths the size of a dish towel, more or less. Instead of dish towels!
I made myself some small ones for the bathroom, and use them every day. But I've got plenty of dish towels, so had no reason to make any of those. Until Debra's birthday loomed, and I thought she might like some of these. And she did!
I stuck with a blueish theme.
Right sides together, stitched with a space open to turn inside out and then topstitched all around.
One thing I did do extra was put a row or two of "quilting" in the middle on each of these. I wondered if the two layers might shift while drying dishes and thought this would keep things together better.
You can see I had some fun with this.
Seven in all.
I've heard of some who make their own single layer towels, but I like this double thickness idea. If you get your cotton on sale, it could be much cheaper than the real thing, which is often expensive.
They're pretty, Deb's happy, and I've used some of my fabric. Now I'm starting work on a quilt.
