what would you do??

i only had, but just a few minutes to spare this weekend to sew... and i think we all know have plenty i could do ( hahaha ), but what would you do if you had to choose??

for me, i just bypassed it all and made those darling flour sack patchwork towels that have been floating around in my head for awhile. and damn it... they really turned out super pimp, so i think i chose wisely! i am so random ( admittedly ), but i love me so... whateves! LOL








no, i didn't make a dent in my stacks... but, these are just too cute to care... and at $3.00 for a pack of them, how could i really go wrong here??
LOL

X, Heather

  2. Very cute! Where do you get for $3.00 a pack? Even at Costco I pay more than that. I love the towels. I add fabric to them, I embroider them, I make my husband white "chefs" half aprons out of them. I would like to pay less! Thanks for the fun blog! Toni

  5. flour sack toweling is perfect for wine glass and eye glasses! My fav! I embroider them but I think your edging is much more modern and funky.

  10. Love those! I don't have a Bi-mart near me sadly but I just ordered some on Amazon (about $13 for a 7-pack which is not bad) so I can make some :)

  12. I think Walmar carries some sort of flour sack towels - 5 for about 6 bucks. I've no idea on the quality although I'm about to run out and get some to make these adorable kitchen towels. I'm thinking Christmas presents for my mom and sisters!!! Thanks for the inspiration.

  14. REALLY cute! I can't tell from the picture, did you attach it like binding or is it sewn folded to one side? I can only see one stitch line. Hope the question makes sense.

  15. At first I thought that was binding on facebook, but now that I see the projects, that is such a great idea. Nice job my friend!

    PS. My capcha word is Fabli - That will be my new favorite word, this is so Fabli!! LOL

  17. I love, love, love these, but how did you make them? Did you attach the patchwork just like a binding? Inquiring minds want to know (and make some ourselves).

    Thanks!

  18. Oh, yeah, and how wide did you cut your strips? Still swooning over these...

  19. I would love to know how you did them too. SO adorable!!! They carry these at Target and Walmart for around a buck a piece - they sell them in 5 and 6 packs.

  20. Great minds think similarly! http://www.flickr.com/photos/53865436@N00/7188363550/ I made this for my mama day before... made one for a girlfriend and one for me too!

  21. I'm new to sewing. Does anyone know where I could find a tutorial for how to add a border to a towel? I haven't had much luck with my google search.

  22. Hi! Love these...and wondering like a few others, how did you attach the binding?? Thanks!

  23. Mine were a 5 pack for $4.98 at Walmart White ones 100% cotton from Pakistan. The Colored ones were on sale 3 pack for $1.50.. and they looked really cheap not as nice as the White ones... I am going to wash them to see how they look and if they don't look good then I will have to go somewhere else like a Kitchen Store ( the Kitchen Collection in our mall is leaving) so nearest nicer store is about 40 miles away... I am binding the Towels for a Swap in Swap-bot.
