Seems like ten years since I’ve been here. Anybody home?? Hey, are ya in there???
Well, since the place appears abandoned, I’ll just sit down and make myself at home. I’ve got about 15 more dressy tea towels cut out, ready to make before November 14 (the BIG DAY) when I make my debut at the holiday bazaar. Well…technically…it’s not really my debut. I did this bazaar a couple of years ago and pretty much bombed. Being the glutton for punishment (or the chicken that wakes up in a new world every day) that I am, I’m going at it again. Full speed ahead!!
I won’t bore you with the details of each and every towel I’ve made, but just share some photos. I did try some different pattern ideas out – one with bodice pleats (very time-consuming), one with very slinky fabric (won’t do THAT again!!), a cross/body design, and even some for boys (loved doing these!). Some were special orders that have already been delivered. Others are waiting their turn to be adopted at the craft bazaar.
I hope you enjoy these – and remember, I do special orders! 🙂
experiment with crossover pattern. Only made one.
This one sold before the bazaar too. I may make another one!
another country girl look
Love the country kitchen look.
a REAL tea towel!
a special order…kind of remind me of little Swiss girls
some people like dark colors…I hope
This one is just cheerful looking to me.
My first attempt at a ‘boy’ towel. It sold immediately…so I made a few more.
looks a little like fall and a little like summer to me.
one of my favorites!
a Sunday-go-to-meetin’ dress
trying one with a lace apron and ties
fabric made me think of stained glass windows
a remake – I like it better with the lace and ruffles.
Made me think of a little girl on her way to school
love red and white for Christmas
One that never made it to the sale – bought straight from the sewing machine!
special order – she didn’t like the ‘legs’ sewn together, so I changed them.
love buttons and lace!
lacy collar for Christmas
attempt at a ‘fancy’ one – did not like working with that fabric!
trying one with a necklace again. First one bombed, so hopefully this one will sell.
I had a couple of ‘ho ho ho’ fabrics, so I thought I’d make Christmas towels. Seemed to be a good idea at the time.
the other piece of ‘ho ho ho’ fabric
a scrap and some lace? – make a heart!
I don’t drink wine, but I like the color of the towel.
a few fall colors
This one I kept! Now I have his and hers towels.
