I was given a package of really beautifully embroidered vintage fingertip towels. The ones I have are very thin, more like handkerchief material.  I hate to use them to wipe anything dirty on, but I'd like to do *something* with them.  They're white, about 6 1/2 by 11 inches long, with embroidered flowers and a green hem along the bottom. (Sorry - ye olde digitale camera is on the fritz or I'd show you a pic.)

I saw a few bags and things on this site, and the post about vintage towel patterns. But like I said, these towels are quite a bit flimsier than those projects seem to require. My question is...does anybody have a good idea for what to do with these little towels?  There are about 6 in the package.

"But why don't you scream now?" Alice asked, holding her hands ready to put over her ears again.

"Why, I've done all the screaming already," said the Queen. "What would be the good of having it all over again?"

I think what you have are finger tip towels.  They are served with a bowl of water to clean your fingers between courses at formal dinners.

Maybe a curtain for bath or kitchen.

Personally, I'd frame 'em.

Back them with interfacing or something equally soft if they're fragile and then use some of them as a panel or two in a bag.
