Jazzed Up Drying Towel

I hand wash most of our dishes.  It seems easier whenever King is out of town for me to hand wash the few dishes that I dirty by myself.  I takes a really long time for only one person to fill up the dishwasher!  Most of the time I have a towel sitting on the counter for drying dishes.  I saw a post where a lady jazzed up her towel to accommodate the size of her counter and decor.  I knew I had to make one especially since I had some apron fabric left over, which I LOVE!  Even made some decorative towels to match.  I put a nappy towel on the inside for some extra absorbency.

Yeah, I am terrible at remembering and saving where I saw ideas.  If this is your idea, PLEASE let me know so I can give you credit!  I have finally developed a way to save ideas with the blog name from where I got it!!

I like this! I could totally use one! Hubby always yells at me because I get the entire counter next to the sink soaked with water when I'm washing dishes and then I soak the dishtowel cleaning it all up!

You can't get more fabulous... you just can't! I hate actual "dish drainers", so this? I love!

That is so cute and I love your drying towel. We usually have a towel out for our milking equipment and this would be so much nicer than just "a towel". Thanks for the idea :)

My towels definitely need to be jazzed! Love how you did them.

I'm starting a new sew along, come check it out at TheTrainToCrazy.com!
