I was doing some late-night sewing the other night and figured I wasn't quite alert enough to tackle the sleeves... so I whipped up some cutesy flour sack towels! I bought these towels a while back for this very reason but they were set aside for more important sewing tasks at hand. Lucky for me, I found them again and now have these to show for it! Yay - happy kitchen and happy hands!
I dug out these Amy Butler remnants from my scrap pile and went to work.
And I discovered just how great that little ball-point sewing needle works while I was adding the jumbo rickrack. My regular sewing needle broke with my first attempt!
I don't know that there's much better than a towel with a ruffle!
And I'm loving the flour sack towels - they bring back memories of being at my grandmother's house on holidays, as I was always given dish-drying duty and it was always with these gigantic flour sack towels. I guess for some great things there are just no substitutes.
