Dish Towel Picnic Carrier

These neat bundles have everything you need for a picnic meal, including a handle to transport them. With a few quick folds and a knot, you can transform a dish towel into a carrier for a sandwich and drink. Once you're at your destination, use the towel as a place mat or napkin.



  1. Step 1


    Lay a dish towel flat, with one corner facing you. Place a wrapped submarine sandwich and drink (roughly the same size) near bottom corner of towel, leaving a few inches between them, and start rolling.

  2. Step 2


    Continue rolling; stand sandwich and bottle upright.

  3. Step 3


    Tie once, twist ends, and tie in a double knot. If you like, slip a straw and a sweet into the folds of the towel.
