These napkins are absorbent, wash wonderfully well, and super affordable. That's because they're made from IKEA dish towels!

Kaley of the blog Kaley Ann notes that this idea hardly warrants a tutorial because it's so simple. The gist of the project is this: buy a pack of IKEA's ELLY dish towels ($3.99 for a 4-pack), cut each towel in half, iron the edge, then sew a straight line along the hem. It's as easy as that!

She writes that once you run the napkins through the washer a few times, you'll "see their true beauty emerge." But don't iron them — they're supposed to have that laid-back, rumpled look.
