Wedding season is in full bloom. If your wallet is getting slimmer, perhaps this fun project will help. Click to download the tutorial: Download Boutique Kitchen Towels 1 yard of cotton fabric is enough to make 2 towels.
These towels were born when my friend, Jennifer, fell in love with some screen printed towels on etsy. They were fantastic! The towels were sold out, out of my budget, and I don't screen print. So I had the brilliant idea of hand embroidering a similar design. The only problem was the wedding shower was in 4 days, and I was still in the throes of a huge custom sewing project with a fast approaching deadline.
It only took me a few hours to realize that hand embroidery was out of the question. I ripped the stitches out and came up with this alternative that I finished in 15 minutes! I love the look and Jennifer did too.
To complete the gift, I added a half apron and a full halter style apron in coordinating fabrics. Why, oh why, didn't I take pictures with them unfolded?
