Dish Towels Made From A Drop Cloth...


Making these dish towels from a drop cloth was very easy!
It also made a lot of them...
Firstly, I washed the drop cloth in my washer and dried it.
I used a drop cloth that was 100% cotton.

I used a dish towel that was a size that I preferred for my pattern!
Some towels are just too short or long and even to wide.

I cut them to size and then I ironed a hem, then I did a quick
Run on my sewing machine.

I embellished them with bits of scrap material and some I added a bit of lace ribbon.

It was so easy peasy and I made a ton of them and gave them away as gifts.
I kept a few for myself and have found them to be a superb towel!

I wished I had taken a few more pictures of all the ones I made.
But really you can use the colors that match your kitchen!
Make a few for friends and family!

They would make a nice gift for a Bridal shower,
 because these babies hold up in the kitchen!



This was the label that was one the one I purchased for this project!
I found mine at a store called Harbor Freight.

I do love a good dish towel and these are really a very nice quality;

In these long winter months you could make some for gifts or for yourself!

Have you ever tried making anything from Drop Cloths?

If you like this idea feel free to put it on your Pinterest Board

I have made tons of things from drop cloths, too! I have used them for 'dividers' in my basement, I sewed one in a box shape to cover up a hanging clothes rack. I have used them for causal curtains, etc. I like the heft of the fabric, too.
Hope you have a great weekend- xo Diana

I made curtains out of drop cloths and big plastic grommets. We love them; the oatmeal color of the fabric is so calming. Your towels are lovely. My kitchen towels are getting worn. Your towels are so pretty. I'm going to make some!
I was actually thinking about using drop cloth fabric to make a casual jacket with big patch pockets. Something to wear when gardening. What do you think?

I wonder if I could make a slipcover for my couch and loveseat? Any suggestions?

What a terrific idea. I didn't know drop cloths could be used for that. If I find a little extra time and money....

What a wonderful idea! I've made hand towels from white towels and put trim on them. I needed something a certain size for my bathroom and this was the best way to get them. I added your blog to my blog list on the sidebar! I'm excited to visit you more often! Hugs, Diane
