Upcycled Weekend Craft

Ecc. 10:9
10 Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do , do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest

This weekend I purposed in my heart to make some upcycled un-paper-towels. Mine were pretty easy until it came to putting the snaps on. I didn't have a new fangled plastic snap system so I used my old fashoned sew on snaps several hours later I finished my project. What I used was some old towels that were not as big as I really like to use and some left over material from someone's quilting project that they gave me. Now I need to buy a paper towel holder for them to roll off of. When I do that I will show you how they look.

 A word to the wise: Buy the new fangled plastic snap system before attempting such a project. I am pleased with my un-paper towels I even saw my husband take one out and use it! Although I wished I would have had a great snap kit like this one.

What about you? Have you made your own un-paper towels?

This is the snap kit

I've seen these before and have wanted to try them. Your's look so cute. What did you use for fabric?
