This is a "low-sew" SewUseful project for Etsy.com. Check it out at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6472213. This Set holds four 6-piece flatware sets made from dish towels and ribbon and four plates in one holder made from kitchen towels and ribbon. You will need the following supplies:

-four dish towels
-two kitchen towels
-No Slip Shelf Liner
-ribbon
-thread
-sewing machine
-scissors
-dress pins

I got all the towels and shelf liner at my "local" dollar store to keep the project low cost. You can mix or match towels and ribbon and add any decor to your project you want.

Take one dish towel and fold up 2/3 from one side. (The dish towel should be about square so it shouldn't matter which side you fold up from.) Pin across and down sides and double-sew (I sewed down and then sewed back up in reverse next to the first sewed part) the edges together. Then "double-sew" down the middle from the hemmed edge of the towel to your fold. Tie ends and trim off excess thread. Repeat the "double-sew" from hemmed edge to your fold twice on each side of the middle line you just sewed. This should make six compartments.
Repeat all of the above steps with the other three dish towels.
