I've gotten well into using tea towels to make my blinkies. I got the idea when my grandmother gave me a big bag full of rags for Joe's paint brushes, and I couldn't possibly waste the kitchness value of the tea towels... they were too perfect. One tea towel makes about 2 blinkies, but there is often this little piece left over-- the perfect size to make a bib from!
Mind the fabric paint stain on this one, but I think it's a great idea, tea towels get really soft as they get worn, and obviously they were made to wipe stuff up!
If you want to have a go, there are some free patterns here:

I also found a cool flickr group which showcases people's funky tea towel creations: it's here.
And below are some sneak peaks!
Now it's time to sample an apple pastizzi-- we've just recently discovered the delights of frozen pastizzies from our local fruit shop... so so so very good!
