What I Did With a Ripped-Up Bedspread

The bedspread came into A's creative reuse shop ripped in half - useless, right?  but there were pretty parts to it.


I pieced together three hanging hand towels (oven towels) out of it.

Towel one went to PunkRizz. The topper is made of genuine feedsack.


Towel two went to a church lady at a fun church bazaar.


And towel three is the only one left, looking pretty in a bathroom or a kitchen.  It's in my shop!

I LOVE when stuff that otherwise seems ruined gets turned into something useful and beautiful again! All the better if it turns into 3 useful/beautiful things!

I fancy that first one.

The towel is GORGEOUS, and because of my most wonderful cousin, I have two of Margo's beautiful and oh-so-handy hanging hand towels. My toddler objected when I hung them both up (she likes to watch her reflection in the oven door when she dances) but I enjoyed looking at them every time I'm in the kitchen--which is most of my life. THANK YOU for my kitchen beauties.

Lovely Margo. Good use for the linen.

WHAT is the topper for the second//the dogwood fabric? I've recently started eyeing a vintage tablecloth with a similar design (yellow background with dogwoods) that I may use as the basis for my decor scheme when we renovate our basement. I LOVE it and the topper you have looks quite similar!

Polly, I got a little slice of that goldy fabric at JoAnn's Fabric. I thought it was pussywillow, sort of. But it's the most wonderful gold color and the little pussies have delicate blue shading. Can't wait to see your colors for your basement!

Punk, you are so very welcome! I'm glad you like them.
