(please excuse the poor photography)
It's no secret; I'm a sucker for a deal. So when I saw these awesome cupcake tea towels on sale at Ikea, 3 for 50 cents, I had to get them. I knew that even though I'd never use them in the kitchen, they could definitely be repurposed for something else in the future.
Wouldn't you know, a few months later a dear friend asked me to make an apron for her 7 year old daughter. Perfect! I just cut the top quarter off finished the raw edge and added a pocket and some ties. Voila - delicious.
I'm a firm believer that if it's fabric, it can have another life after it's original purpose. Skirts become purses and totes, dresses become skirts, scraps become necklaces... Remember this handbag I made out of another Ikea tea towel?
Tea towels come in such amazing prints it would be a shame to leave them in the kitchen for cleaning up! How do you use your tea towels? xo
