Tea-towel addict

So obviously as picture one shows the rag-tag assortment of tea-towels that I rootled out from between the sink and washing mchine I do NEED some new ones. These four little darlings are far too nice to go in my tip of a kitchen and I am waiting for inspiration to hit and tell me what I can make from them.....especially as my collection is now up to seven too-nice-to-use towels. Any suggestions? Mum if you happen to see this all I can say is I'm sorry. (Mums towels have hanging loops and get day I'll make her proud...!)

Snap!!! I'm love teatowels too but as we've got a dishwasher I never really need to use them. I have the answer tho' - the Martha Stewart Dishtowel Tote Bag!! If you Google that huge title the first thing that comes up is a tutorial on write mama write. It's really good and I've made 3 now. Have another pile of teatowels all ready to convert. :o)
