Yesterday I had both my embroidery and sewing machines going.
First I made these luggage labels for my Mum for part of her Mother's Day gift. I changed the "name & address" paper with her actual name and address which I printed out on the computer with a picture as well.
While I was sewing the labels, I embroidered these 2 towels:
I also embroidered 4 tea towels and 4 matching dish cloths:
Then I cut up a BRAND NEW bath robe made out of the cotton waffle like fabric I bought at a garage sale for $5 (it was still sealed in the packaging with labels) and made 4 tea towels and 4 dish cloths out of it with 4 little pieces left over which I put with my "dusters"... (well I didn't need a bath robe!... I bought it to cut up and make these)....actually my boyfriend picked up the robe and I said I didn't want it..and he just looked at me strangely and whispered "tea towels"... had to smile...he's learning quickly!
Today I will be sewing more towels, but will also be spending time with my boyfriend.
Until next post...
Quilted and bound!!
