Day 31 of Make Madness – DIY Dishtowels


01539c33cdf723c9713b23806447681db032ee7b17014fead364e4ce28e106e73e2e705823b023ee51a1I started by cutting the summer dress into the largest pieces of fabric possible and kept the hem intact.  This gave me only three sides to hem.

I used an old dishcloth as my pattern and cut out several “new” dishcloths.  The fabric is a nice heavyweight cotton which will do well for kitchen chores.  I hemmed the three remaining sides and was done in no time at all.  The whole project went faster than I thought it would.

Well this is the end of the {Make Madness} series. It’s been so much fun trying new activities and working on projects that I’ve been literally wanting to do for years.  Thank you for joining me on this little venture.  I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.


April Blog Series {DIY From Scratch}

I’ll be doing a blog series in April called {DIY From Scratch} starting April 2nd.  All the posts will involve making home and gardening solutions, beauty concoctions and DIY projects from scratch.  I’m interested in seeing if these will 1) save me money and 2) actually work.  I’ll be doing a summary post at the end of the month to report on the effectiveness of my attempts.  Really hope you will join me.
