Happy Tuesday, I hope your holiday weekend was fun and that you are off to the start of a great four day week! Usually these 3 day weekends totally throw me off but we got up and at em at our house and are tackling our to-do list. I am really excited to get back to my regular Tuesday Crafties post, I have really missed sharing them and have some awesome little projects I've been working on lately.
My little sister leaving the nest and has taken a job to be much closer to our family here in Texas. To say I am excited does not do it justice. As I write this I want to follow each of my sentence with four or five exclamation points like I am a 13 year old girl, but I will refrain! Anyhow, since she is getting her first place and has nothing, I thought I would pull together a care package of sorts to get her started.
She really loves Anthropologie for clothes and stuff and I really love them for their housewares but am I going to pay $20 for a dish towel, no thanks. So I thought, I will go check out my local fabric store and see what they've got and sew her a couple of dish towels! Here's what I came up with:
I am pretty proud of myself. I haven't sewn anything freehand with out a pattern in forever. And even though technically the towel was a rectangle, I used two different fabrics and added the ric-rac finish. I am pretty excited and hope she likes them. And I am thinking I might make some for my sister-in-law next, maybe as a Christmas gift.
How was your holiday weekend? Did you tackle any projects?
