Open any cabinet or closet, and there’s sure to be a stack of tea towels of all different colors. While most of us use tea towels to clean dishes or display as decor, there’s actually one more great use for them … napkins! Most restaurants have moved away from traditional napkins and use tea towels not only for a practical reason (they’re bigger) but also for aesthetics. They look old-school cool.
For your tea towels, you can take it a step further and design them. Whether it’s monogramming them with your guests’ names for a dinner party (mix and match colors and designs for an eclectic feel) or adding fun patterns, your tea towels can be fab in a flash. Here are a bunch of Ready-to-Make projects to get the ideas flowing.
