Have you ever made miniature sized soaps? At Christmas time my daughter wanted to make…

I discovered a new crochet towel holder several months ago. Do you know the kind where a person crochets yarn directly onto a towel, so that you can attach the towel to an oven or drawer handle? (pictured below). Well, this new-to-me kind is different!
The style where the yarn is crocheted onto a towel is seen below:
This new one that I discovered is crocheted separately. Then you slip the towel through it. It consists of 3 rows worked in an oblong shape, and the first row is the chain. It doesn’t take much yarn, so this is a great way to use up leftover yarn scraps.(*This post may contain affiliate links.

I have made a lot of these crochet towel holders for myself, for friends, and to sell at yard sales. The video below explains really well how to make one. You can make one all in one color, or use two colors.
After I gave them to my friends, their children discovered other uses for these towel holders.
They can also be used as beards!! : ) Brown towel holders work especially well for this. They can keep your face warm in cold weather….
Or they can be used as spa eye mask for a sleep aid– you know, a sleeping mask to keep the light out of your eyes so you can rest.
This craft idea is short and simple. It’s also three ideas for the price of one! : )
