one fine day, I'd like to try this using jersey sheets and make a huge rug credit: Sisters of the Wild West: Braided Rug Tutorial: Recycling old towels Rag Rugs, Idea, Old Towels, Towels Rugs, Bathroom Rugs, Rugs Tutorials, Braids Rugs, Bath Mats, Wild West
DIY Hooded Towel - made two of these tonight. It was pretty easy, except sometimes the layers got pretty thick. My sewing machine managed to power through! They turned out really cute and I love how big the hood is. I made them for gifts but I think next I'll make some for my own kid!
Ruffled Dish Towels @Eleanor Gourely, let's get some of these and make them while you are here!
Soak a hand towel in fabric softener. Squeeze out any remaining drops from the towel. Hang it over a chair (or outside on a clothes line) to dry. My house smelled super clean for the three days while this towel was drying completely. Yes, it took three days! You must make sure it dries completely! After the towel dries you just throw it in your dryer along with clothes and use it as a dryer sheet for 40-50 loads before soaking again.
