Could have kept using it in our powder room but I had another trick up my sleeve...
Why not turn it into a kid's art apron/smock?!
We certainly use them around here!
Re-Use and RePurpose your old hand towels into something useful!
Folded under two corners of the towel to make the top of the apron/smock,
pinned them with straight pins and pinned a bit of
felt ribbon in there as a neck strap.
Ran it through the sewing machine.
Then turned up approximately 6 inches
of the bottom of the towel to make a big pocket at the bottom of the apron/smock.
(I added the purple felt ribbon detail and flower
to jazz it up a bit - because I can't leave anything alone)
Then, I stitched up two more lines
to divide the big pocket
into three smaller pockets --
perfect for holding crayola twistables,
colored pencils, scissors, glue, etc.
No ties in the back, just put it on and you're ready to go--
I left it hanging on our kid's art easel.
The nice thing about this apron/smock
is both girls can wear it.
I need to make some more
before my summer art camps for kids start (June-August).
