I sorted through my linen press today and came upon a pair of towels
that had frayed badly along the side edges.
Now I hate to waste anything and had left them in the cupboard
because the main part of the towels was still quite thick
I cut 4 strips of fabric the length of the sides plus a few centimetres
for turning in at the ends
Sew onto towel sides,right sides together
Turn to the other side and with a little turn under to hide raw edge
sew right through all layers.
I am so pleased to get some more life out of these.
I love to make do and mend. It gives me a lot of satisfaction,
and saves me heaps of money
I had some fabric left over,so made a nice border along
both ends of 2 hand towels
I am quite pleased with my efforts
Don't you just love days when you achieve so much.
