unpaper towels

I made a roll of unpaper towels a few weeks ago and I L-O-V-E them!!!



They were really easy to make.

Take 2 yards of flannel and 2 yards of terry cloth, cut it all into 11.5X11.5 squares, and serge the raw edges together.

Simple.

Next, put snaps on the corners of each towel and snap them all together around a paper towel holder.



That's it.

Very Eco friendly and pretty too :)

There was even enough fabric to make some smaller towels and washcloths. We use them as napkins.

Hi! I plan on making these. Where did you buy the terry cloth and flannel, and how much was it? I really want to make these but may just buy them premade if it would be more cost effective. Also, how did you put the snaps on them?
