I made them about the same size as the select-a-size paper towels, 6x11 inches. I didn't sew the edges because the material is such that it won't unravel. Thank goodness, if sewing had been necessary I know this project would never have happened! (tip: use pinking shears to cut your fabric if the edges fray) I was able to get 6 paper towels out of each shirt so now I have 24 reusable paper towels. We'll see if that's enough to get us through at least one day! I plan on doing the same thing with our old baby receiving blankets and my husband's old t-shirts.
Last time I was at The Container Store I noticed one reusable paper towel/napkin selling for $6! Yeah, they are cute, but give me a break! Make your own for free!
Have you made your own un-paper towels? How did you make them?
