My mom has had some neat hanging hand towels in her kitchen for as long as I can remember. There is always one hanging from the handle of the fridge for drying hands or whatever else you might need. The apartment where I live now has the longest kitchen I’ve ever seen, and although we usually have towels hanging on the wall near the sink, I was forever dripping water everywhere looking for one when I moved them or accidently left them on the other side of the kitchen. So to stop this problem, I took inspiration from mom’s nifty fridge-towels and made my own. It’s a set of three, each in a different shape. They close with two snaps so I can hang them from my cabinet handles. (Mom’s tie, but over the years those thin ties have started to tear off. Plus I wanted to be able to tear them loose one-handed if I needed to. I tend to be messy in the kitchen.)
a remnant of some slightly sheer, wrinkly, stretchy multicoloured stuff that I liked the look of but knew I’d never use for anything bigger than this, black extra-wide bias tape, and an orange 1€ Ikea towel. Total cost for all three towels (plus leftovers): 2€. I think the tops of Mom’s are actually made of pot holders!
