A perfect gift idea for Mother’s Day, or just any old day! Use a dishtowel to pass your favorite recipes on to your loved ones. You can trace the handwriting from old recipes (how awesome would it be to have a recipe towel written in your grandmother’s handwriting?) or you can free write it instead! Either way, make sure you pick a marker that is safe to use on fabric. Use old tea towels (or flour sack towels, they’re essentially the same thing!) as the basis for this project. You can get a set of tea towels for $3! What a bargain.
