Don’t you just love these? These are UN-PAPER towels, and they are my latest obsession! You use them the same way you would paper towels, except you don’t throw them away. You can re-wash them and re-use them over and over! Keep them on your paper towel holder, and “tear” off a new towel when you need one! They fasten to the next towel with a thin, 1/4″ strip of velcro.
How much do you spend on paper towels? We are a family of 2 adults, 4 dogs, and 4 newly born puppies. We go through paper towels like they are going out of style. A 12pk of paper towels can cost $14.99, and you throw them away! Think of all that money down the drain.
I’m making a different design for all the different rooms in the house that we use paper towels. So when I’m doing laundry, I know which room the towels go back in based on the design I made for each room.
My un-paper towels have absorbent terry cloth fabric on one side, and a cute print on the other side.
Everyone I show these to, loves them – so I’m in super-sewing mode and making a ton of these to sell at upcoming craft fairs.
First I cut out a bunch of towels to sew. This stack had about 60 towels ready to be sewn.
4 different patterns!
Sewing some red hot chili pepper towels!
A stack sewn, and just awaiting velcro! You could also use snaps in place of the velcro – I tried that at first, but I liked the velcro better.
The finished product! LOVE!! ♥♥♥
