How To Make Dish Cloths Made From A Drop Cloth...


This is an easy and inexpensive hand towel you can make;
 for yourself or as a gift for others!
I did both, because using a drop cloth allows you so much more fabric!

Firstly, I purchased a new drop cloth and washed and dried it!
This was the brand I bought from a local hardware store!
As you can see it is a very large size of material!
And is 100% Cotton
It is a very soft cotton and very sturdy.



After the Drop Cloth was washed and dried, I then began cutting out,
my hand towels, using a size I liked from a kitchen towel I had.

I cut so many out, I truly cannot remember how many I got from that one drop cloth.
One drop cloth I think was around ten dollars!

As you can see once they were ironed and hemmed each side,
 I sewed on a piece of fabric and,
added a bit of sturdy lace to them also!

I was able to use scrap material to embellish them and added bits of trim.

I did make these in an assembly line fashion as it made it go quite fast!
I also had a dear friend come over to make a few for herself and some gifts.
Everyone loved these hand towels as they were soft, sturdy absorbent!

Not to mention very pretty and unique and useful!

All I can say is if you need a lot of fabric for cheap for a craft idea or
a home project. Is to look into purchasing and using a drop cloth!

You can make reusable gift bags!
You can make curtains!
You can make dusting cloths!
You can make Burp Cloths!

There are many ideas out there, that require an inexpensive, and sturdy fabric!

Try this and I think you will be pleasantly surprised!

Blessings To You Dear Ones!

Hugs, Roxy

  3. Really like the ideas of dish cloths. We all enjoy a clean, new dish cloth, especially tailor made.
    I have made curtains from drop cloths and boy are they great! Little or no sewing required.

    1. Hi Amanda, Yes these are very soft as they are all cotton material and they are able to absorb water well!
