My latest upcycling project has been hand towels made from tablecloths. Once a permanent fixture in kitchens and dining rooms, it seems that tablecloths have gone by the wayside, along with the popularity of daily ironing.
So to keep these classics still in circulation, I have cut them down to hand towel size, embellished them with various trims (mostly ruffles made from recycled sheets) and made them into something we use everyday (ironing optional).
A showcase for things I like: fashion, fabric, upcycling and recycling. I take items with a "previous" life (be it thrift items, vintage treasures, remnants, etc...) and give them a "second chance" at charming others. Enjoy!
