Today I am linking up at Life Made Lovely.
Here's a way we are trying to add a little bit of loveliness to our life-
I gave this as a gift to my husband.
It seems like a funny man gift.
But, my husband likes to do dishes for me.
And, he likes a nice looking, non-cluttered kitchen counter.
We decided to get rid of our dish drainer.
Less stuff & a cleaner look.
I used a clearance towel from Kmart for the bottom side.
I picked some sturdy & pretty fabrics from my way front.
I cut them into different sized blocks & sewed 'em together.
Then sewed the front & back, wrong sides together.
Flipped it & top stitched the edge & the center.
I'm gonna make another one soon,
with a cool dish towel that I have & use for the top.
When the dishes are dry, the towel can be put away
much easier than the old dish drainer.
It is also much easier to keep it clean.
Just throw it in the washing machine.
No need to scrub grossness off of the dish drainer all the time.
Simpler & lovelier.
