A towel for the laundry sink.
Now to make a cover for that ugly detergent bottle.
Much better with a bottle cozy and an iron-on transfer. (I can still dispense the detergent with this on.)
Icky drain pipe before.
Drain pipe is out of sight and out of mind!

I have a huge canvas drop cloth that has performed various outdoor duties such as protecting the hot tub from the summer sun. It has some mildew spots, and the fabric is getting a bit weak, but after a good wash, it is being transformed for new uses. In addition to these, I may also make a floor cloth with part of it.

I've also made floor clothes, if you need any help let me know. Posted: 3:27 pm on February 10th
