This week’s Iron Craft challenge was to make something that had to do with the letter g, whether in terms of material, color or technique.
We have been using cloth napkins for years, and some of them have gotten pretty ratty. We use those ugly ones as rags, but because everything gets washed together they sometimes end up back in the napkin drawer.
I fixed that in about five minutes.
Making Upcycled Kitchen Rags
Now the rag napkins are a different size (and shape, let’s be honest, because I wasn’t too careful with the cutting) and have a different edging that even the girl could distinguish as not being a normal napkin.
One of them is even green.
Either way, this is a great use for old napkins, torn-up towels and stained T-shirts that you want to convert into rags.
