I have been recycling tablecloths my MIL gave me many months ago. I don't use tablecloths but as I use lots of tea towels and was in great need of a large oven mitt, I got this tablecloth out of the cupboard.
I set about cutting it up using the outside section for tea towels. I got four tea towels from this one cloth.
I love my tabletop too much to cover it with anything but I'm learning to use what materials I have in the house and recycle rather than rush out and purchase a replacement oven mitt. Plus I got extra tea towels. Plus I got the size oven mitt that I wanted. If I can do it, anyone can.
Have a great day and don't forget to visit Rhonda and also check out some of the other contributors on her blog.
