On the March Break we went to Mennonite country, Elmira and St. Jacobs Ontario, and I picked up some really thick white hand towels. I had a project in mind at the time.

Deb at Homespun Living shared her dishmat with a link to the tutorial and I knew I wanted to make some for both our home and my sister's home. Dish drainers are fine sometimes, but often we use tea towels on the counter when we wash large plastic containers, glass serving bowls or lunch containers -stuff that just doesn't fit well in a standard dish drainer. I used the fluffy hand towel on one side and a tea towel on the other side. It is really absorbent and super easy to throw in the wash. I love easy sew projects and plan to make more!


  1. What a great idea. It is so pretty too. Hugs, Marty

  2. What an awesome idea! We have a few bowls and pans that don't fit in the dishwasher or the dish dryer and just use towels on the counter... I might have to try to make one of these myself!

  3. hi Elizabeth. thanks for visiting me! i love this idea and would use that baby constantly. i also love your slipcovered furniture -- so gorgeous and just the right amount of femininity.



  4. This is a great idea, Elizabeth. I have a lot of things that I put on towels, too. Thank you for the comment on my daughter. Hugs, Kim
