I always buy an extra matching sheet to make pillowcases rather than purchasing them ready-made because it is much less expensive, so I thought, why not get a matching towel and make my own matching wash cloths? Better yet, I found that some of my favorite towels still had good portions even though they had worn thin in spots. My solution was to cut squares from these good parts and make wash cloths by serging the edges with a wide 3 thread overlock.

I LOVE your idea about the extra sheet! I like the wash cloth idea, too, but I'm less apt to use that as I don't have a serger. Thanks!

I never compared the price of pillow cases vs an extra sheet -- I will now!

Great idea for DH's that are hard on pillowcases..I will do this, especially when Target has them on sale after Thanksgiving (for $5ea in 2006) for 400count.

I have done the same thing with tattered towels. Instead of using them for washcloths, I use them for cleaning and giving my DP (dear pooch) a bath. I cut off the worn parts and search the edges.
