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.
