While yard sale-ing last fall, I came across some unique retro dish towels that still had some life in them. I decided to update them so they could continue hanging out in the kitchen as they had for many years. I got the idea for making these from a similar towel my mom gave me. She used a new towel and pot holder to make hers but I liked the idea of repurposing old towels because I find the colors and patterns so interesting. Plus it kinda goes with my "old things made new" theme! I love that these hang on the oven door handle and are always accessible without falling on the floor. Think of them as dresses for your oven!
She is a vintage cotton towel with a cross stitch or needlepoint pattern. The towel features men and women, dogs, trees, flowers and a house in green, red, blue and yellow. Nancy has been gussied up with some vintage red white and blue fringe trim, a white glass button with green dots, and a new pot holder. She's in great vintage condition and hangs 18". Won't you let her hang out in your kitchen?
