Tea Towel Cushion Cover

It was way past time to replace the old, worn cushion covers on our lounge. And I thought that perhaps it might be an opportunity to have a couple of seasonal covers, so we can mix things up from time to time 🙂

With that in mind, and having seen the idea of using tea towels (kitchen or dish towels) to do this, I purchased 2 summer-themed towels at the end of last year. You know, when summer was starting here in Australia lol. I found these at KMart:

Personalised Tea (Kitchen) Towel

I love this tea (kitchen) towel that we made many years ago, and wondered why I hadn’t shared it here before now!

We made these to give to family for Christmas. They do take a bit of time and planning, but are definitely a one-of-a-kind item! And it can get a bit messy 😉

I used good quality vintage pillowcases. They were old family linen, but were sitting unused in my cupboard. I didn’t want to throw them out, so I up-cycled them!

(Please pardon these rather un-edited photos – I have a new computer and haven’t quite got the new photo editing system down pat yet.)

Renewing One of the Most Useful Things in my Kitchen

Tea towels; we use them all the time, and they need to be within easy reach. I have them hanging from my oven door, and near my sink.

But we find that the easiest way to dry our hands is to use this towel roll attached to the door!
