So I give in to a little Obsession once in a while....

That's perfectly normal right???

My Mother-In-Law asked my a couple weeks ago if I knew how to crochet the top to those hanging dishtowels, I don't know what their politically correct name is, and I had no idea but I knew they didn't look to hard. So with the help of Google I came up with these tutorials

and with their help I became obsessed with making these fun, and totally functional, little beauties.

Now after I had made a few of these I began to wonder if I could do this in the bathroom, some how my bathroom hand towels are always on the floor.


And it did!!! Now as to whether they keep the hand towels off the floor we will have to just wait and see. Hand towels aren't my only obsession, did you notice the monkeys in my bathroom?? Yep, they are all over the house :)
While in my search I also came across these-

which I also had to make :)
Here is an awesome tutorial for these, it made the whole process Easy Peasy Lemon Squeazzeee as Miss M likes to say-

You are so ridiculously crafty!! I envy your ability to just try and make something and do it well... in what seems like no time. I can be crafty... but it takes much more effort... and WAY more time! : )

I have my Mommer to Thank, she taught me to sew and crochet when I was pretty little and she also taught me that there is nothing I can't do or make myself. She is an amazing seamstress and crafter, she makes some really beautiful stuff, if I want something really complicated or fancy sewn I call her :)

You mean I'm not the only one with towels on the floor;D

This is a very creative and cute way to keep them off the floor!

I've seen these before but I've never liked them because they always use such cheap thin towels but I never thought to make my own. so cute!

Those look great !!!

I love these kind of towel add - ons...my Hubs Aunt, who passed away, used to make them all the time and I still have a few that she had given us over the years...every time I use one, I think of how talented,crafty and what scrumptious goodies she used to bake...Good memories !
