I always hand wash my pieces of antique china and silver. I had been laying the wet dishes out on an ordinary dishtowel to dry. I like the ease of being able to place the used towel in the wash afterwards as opposed to continually cleaning a plastic dishrack which tends to become a mildewy/germy mess.
Recently, I came across a stack of vintage linen dishtowels. I love how quickly they dry. I remembered that I had been wanting to make some fancier dish drying towels.
I dug through all of my vintage fabric scraps and began sewing strips together.
The front and back pieces of fabric were joined together with a bit of machine embroidery.
A small detail that makes me smile.
It was a labor of love to select all the fabrics.
Creating a happy match to the fronts featuring vintage linen calendar towels.
So many of the colors made me smile.
If you would like a dish drying mat to bless your house you can find them HERE.
There are several colors/patterns available.
May all your housework be made happy.
