Oh, what a neat idea!  I'm trying to make a lot of random ideas for Christmas stocking stuffers for people with whom I work and family/friends.  I think this would be faster than crocheting towel toppers  Cheesy  Plus, I'm getting into sewing and learning about hems (I'm such a newb at it)... so this is great!  It's perfect for using leftover tiny scraps, too.  Thanks for the idea!!

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

I love personal swaps for small stuff (including Hershey Kisses!)! PM me for happy fun rockin' good times!

I was very inspired by your towels!! Though it's totally not as good as yours, this is for mi madre for Christmas, to match her red-white-blue kitchen. I made it with quilt squares that I sewed together. Thanks for the idea!!!

I saw these and thought, cool!  I'm going to make some - I didn't even notice the tutorial (perhaps it wasn't there when I looked) but I wanted to share mine that were inspired by yours Smiley



Mine are a bit longer, that you can fold over the stove handles etc...

jktormala - very nice! Smiley

the (other) good thing about making our own dish towels is that we can make it whatever size suits us better;

I love this idea, and I went out and bought some dish towels to experiment with.  I'm having a problem with them being kind of wonky, not exactly square, and the fabric doesn't want to be ironed out.  I'm thinking I probably need to wash them, but was wondering if anyone else has had this problem?
