I smile reading this posting as it brings back memories of all the things I ended up doing with inherited towels. These were fairly good towels, but after giving so many away, I ran out of people to give the rest to. So I took the best of them, got a pattern, and made many, many bath slippers out of them. They were great, when you are climbing out of the tub or shower..instant foot driers! I sewed about 1/5th of either end of some of my towels and created a one piece oven mitt. (I later found out it was better to insulate the "mitts" part with heat resistant material used on ironing boards...sigh) I made couch pillow covers from the best of these towels and cat pillows from the more worn out ones. I used towels to stuff the pillows as well. I had a cupboard full of extra towels!
