Tarting up the tea towels!
My tea towels get a bit of a bashing, and don't last long, so I invested a while ago now in a dozen heavy cotton, good quality ones. Luckily, I came out with a bonus tea towel - 13 for the price of 12! I had them put away until I needed them, being of the mind to "buy when you see", or you'll look back later and wish you did. They're very nice, being plain white, but they're very - well - white! lol So, being me, I decided to tart them up a bit. The fabric is all from my stash, cut into a strip for each short end, then pressed over, pinned, tacked and stitched - simple and quick, but very effective. I've done four for now, with more to follow as I replace the old thin ones as I go along.
A nice option until I get around to weaving my own - lol
