I love the utility of the towels combined with their vintage, handmade feel. My crochet skills still leave something to be desired, and they'll never be as sweet as the "original" towel toppers but once the original ones get retired these new ones would be happy to replace them. I used plain white waffle towels and sewed on strips of scrap fabric that I had from a previous project. They're a bit more modern looking but I'm hoping that they'll still find a place in the hearts of all of the people who loved the woman who made the towels.
I used this pattern.
