Handmade kitchen

Spent the weekend whittling away at my fabric stash to make some useful things for the kitchen. A pretty little dish mat made with vintage towels and scraps:

I even made applique leaves in coordinating fabric.

How nerdy is that?

I made two different mats from one towel so when one gets grody I can toss it into the wash and pull out a clean fresh one to use! I really love kitschy look of them. It doesn't give me any strong urges to do the dishes...but it does make me happy!

I also put together quite a few hand towels from scrap fabric and dove into my vintage button collection.

Although, I think I may regret using white towels.

With four boys in the house, they aren't staying white long!

Adorable. I especially love the dish mat. You're right about the kitschy nature of it--but it's kitschy in just the most perfect way!
