Anthropologie’s (Too Cute to Be Just) Dishtowels

Anthropologie dishtowels

Cotton dishtowels, 28″ long by 21″ wide, from Anthropologie.


Dacia Ray shares a great idea for making the most of Anthropologie’s dishtowels, which might be too precious to use for their intended purpose. Try repurposing the dishtowels to use as a sewing machine cover like the one shown at Dacia Ray, or maybe as a pillow or for decorating a child’s room. Many of the dishtowels have cute appliques or embroidery so they would be perfect for kids.
