I’m getting ready to move – across the country! – and I just realized how many towels I have. Where did all these towels come from, and when did I buy them?

Some of the towels in the back of my closet are in GREAT condition and would make a great “something else.” These projects take some basic sewing skills, but the instructions in the tutorials are clear. One idea that I thought was very cute is the hooded towel for children (above). What else can you DIY with an old towel? Click through the jump to find out!
