No More Dishwashing Blues!

The Cranky Queen recycled "thrift store" finds to make a fun and bright dishtowel!
 For 25 cents, I found 4 polka dot stained cloth napkins. I cut out the bad areas&combined the polka dots w/ fabric from a yellow&white pillowcase. Another thrift store find for 50 cents/pair! 
 With a little creativity, I chose bright colors from vintage fabrics that I have collected during my outings....Casually sewed 3 layers of flower cut~outs and added a button for the center...more of the same old cloth napkin fabric for the leaf.  The final touch...red ball fringe!
This dishtowel will cheer up any kitchen & chase away the dishwater blues!

STAY CALM & MAKE A DISH TOWEL!

    Guess what I received in the mail today????? My pillow from YOU!!! It is even prettier in person and I just love it! Thank you so much! Please go to my blog www.farmgirlsam.blogspot.com and see my post about it! I loved the wrapping, the little card and the picture on the front which I saved. You are a very talented Queen!

  3. A great idea. It definitely is one to not use, but hang and enjoy.

  7. Too cute and I love that you did it for almost nothing. Way to go. I am originally from Jasper, Alabama, NE so I felt a connection to you when I read where you are from. We southern gals have got to stick together!!
