I'm pretty sure I never posted this, so...
Here's what I made for my nephew and new neice for their wedding last year: a set of towels, etc. for their kitchen.
white scrubby pad, red-white dish cloth, 2 pot holders (my original tea pot design), and 2 linen towels
the 2 towels with red fabric accent
I love linen! It's so wonderful to handle and so absorbant!
