Repurposing: Towels

 Had a bath towel that was getting rather "holey" and was sitting in the "I'll do something with this later" bin.  
    Well, it's later ;)  So, a bit of cutting and pinning, and a zig-zag stitch on the hems.  (Actually, the towel in the photo is a work in progress -- you might be able to see the pins holding the top hem.)

Got two hand-sized towels and four nice-size pieces to use for dishrags. 

One of the "new" towels is still a bit worn, so it will be used to clean up messes (or dry off cats).  The other is in good enough shape to use in the bathroom or kitchen.

Great save DW. That towel looks pretty darn good.

God bless.

Thanks Jackie ... I also ended up mending another bath towel that had ripped somehow. Not very artistic looking, but it should hold.
