Her comment is: My favorite color choice is the teal. I would make dinner size napkins because the large size is fun to fold and very dramatic for a table setting!

    Beautiful and practical kitchen towel!

  • BevM
    August 18, 2020

    I would hang the No Hassle Towel Topper beneath the kitchen sink.

  • Julie Kill
    August 18, 2020

    I plan to make a longer one for the bathroom! We have trouble with towels falling off the holder. This would solve that problem! Thank you!

  • Carolyn T

    My towel topper replacements will hang alongside the hand towel in my master bathroom. They signify “mine, all mine, don’t touch!”

  • Dixie
    August 18, 2020

    I would hang the towel on the handle of my stove.

  • Ann West
    August 18, 2020

    The No Hassle Towel Topper would be a perfect addition to my kitchen hanging on my dish washer next to my sinks. Thanks!

  • DebbieW

    On my oven handle. I love these, been around for generations.

  • Anne Kambic
    August 18, 2020

    I hang my towel on the oven handle.

  • beth d.
    August 18, 2020

    I would hang it over the store handle in my kitchen. I would probably make two of them.

  • Joyce Migliore
    August 18, 2020

    I will be making these towel toppers to hang on my oven door in seasonal fabrics to change through out the year!

  • Susan Du
    August 18, 2020

    I’m always looking for a quick hostess or Christmas gift and this is perfect. I would hang mine on the oven door.

  • Carol Rechtoris
    August 18, 2020

    My towel is always near the cooking area. I have a tiny kitchen, so this could be anywhere and always be handy. The Wonder Clips are wonderful for quilt binding and many sewing projects. No pin sticks.

  • Arleen MacCallum
    August 18, 2020

    I would put a bottle of wine in the fabric part that goes over a handle and make it two gifts in one. It might also come in handy at the beach or lake attached to the arm of a chair to quickly dry your hands and it wouldn’t blow away.

  • Sandra C
    August 18, 2020

    I would hang one on the oven door or maybe two of them, and one on the handle on the refrigerator to avoid fingerprints on stainless steel and also one by the dishwasher as I usually need one there as well. I also could you one in my laundry room where I have a “mud” sink and it definitely needs a nice towel to hang in there. What wonderful ideas the SIS’s come up with, just like Nancy. Thank you for continuing on the path that Nancy put us all on and we still want to follow it.

  • Hannah W
    August 18, 2020

    Like many others, I would hang one on my oven.

  • Cyndi
    August 18, 2020

    I would hang mine on my oven or on the dishwasher handle or maybe both places!

  • Gail Beam
    August 18, 2020

    I would hang it on my oven handle

  • Clovis
    August 18, 2020

    I would hang it on my oven door with my other two towels.

  • Kathy
    August 18, 2020

    I would make these for my friends to use in their kitchen. Great idea.

  • Diane Putzer
    August 18, 2020

    I need to make some and hang it on my oven handle. I’m always misplacing my kitchen towels.

  • Tina Freeberg
    August 19, 2020

    We bought an old RV and are restoring it back to life. How cute would these be to make and hang in the kitchen.

  • Susan
    August 21, 2020

    Would hang the Towel Topper right on my oven door where it could be handy. It would be fun to use seasonal fabrics to coordinate with a towel.

  • Lorraine Alves
    August 21, 2020

    The perfect location in my kitchen for the towel would be on the handle of the dishwasher. I’d hang two towels, one for drying hands and the second for removing those stubborn droplets on clean dishes coming out of the dishwasher.

  • Rosie
    August 22, 2020

    I would hang mine on the handle of the dish washer, since it is next to the sink and counter I work at most often.
