What should I do with these tea towels?
While garage saling this weekend, I found these fabulous vintage calendar tea towels, 1965, 1966, 1967, and 1968. Aren't they fabulous? Now, what do I do with them? I have the book Craft Challenge: Dozens of Ways to Repurpose a Tea Towel on hold at the library (surprised they even had it!), but it hasn't come in yet, so I need ideas. I'd like to use the whole towels, if possible. What did people use tea towels for anyway? They don't seem absorbent or practical for anything, but I am sure they served a purpose.
I saw these ideas on Pinterest:
Super cute, but I have no stools to recover.
So cool, but I have no upholstery skills or patience to learn.
These little dresses are adorable, but I have no girls...
What would you make out of them?
